How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in an 8-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add onions and squash and cook over medium heat until they're tender-crisp. Remove the vegetables from the saucepot.

Step 2

Season the beef as desired. Increase the heat to medium-high.  Add the beef to the saucepot and cook until it's well browned on all sides. Remove the beef from the saucepot. Pour off any fat.

Step 3

Add the broth, orange juice, wine, brown sugar and tomatoes to the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Return the beef to the saucepot. Cover and cook for 2 hours.

Step 4

Return the vegetables to the saucepot. Cover and cook for 1 hour or until the beef is fork-tender.

Step 5

Remove the beef to a cutting board. Let stand for 10 minutes. Serve the beef with the vegetables and sauce.
