2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3/4 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp salt
2 tsp canola oil
2 tbs tomato paste
12 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
1 1/2 cups dry red wine (It’s not an accident this leaves just enough for a glass while your cooking)
2 cups beef stock, you could increase this by 1 1/2 cups and eliminate the wine but trust me the wine make all the difference in the world when it comes to the flavor.
