Spanish Daube

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr; Sabrina Bone; Kathleen Kanen

A daube is a classic aromatic beef braise from the South of France, but here it's crossed with Spanish flavors to offer a new twist on this comfort-food classic. Although one cup may seem like a lot of sherry, its flavors are muted once cooked, and it lends the dish a distinctively Spanish flair.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces beef and about 1/2 cup vegetable mixture)
