  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 1 small (5-1/2" long) Carrots
  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Diced Tomatoes
  • 4 oz Red Table Wine
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Light Olive Oil
  • 24 oz, boneless, raw (yield after cooking) Steak
  • 4 can (14 oz), ready-to-serve Beef Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1/2 cup flowerets Broccoli Flower Clusters
  • 7 cup Escarole
  • 1 small Onions
  • 2 tsp Thyme
  • 3 oz Portobello Mushroom Caps


  1. In large non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until golden brown, about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add white onion, celery and carrot and sauté until barely softened, about 2 minutes. Then, add garlic and sauté until aroma is released, about 30 seconds. Finally, add tomatoes and wine and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, season meat with salt and pepper. In large pot over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add meat and sauté until well-browned, about 8 minutes. 
  4. Add tomato-vegetable mixture to broth and water. Bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer until meat is very tender and vegetables are very soft, about 15 minutes. 
  5. Add broccoli, cook 5 minutes. Stir in escarole to wilt, thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cooking Tip

Slice mushrooms thin and try to cut the mushroom pieces/stems and portobello cap so that they're around the same size for even cooking.
