Nutritional values

The dish is bursting with valuable proteins, and this is mainly due to the beef. The protein is particularly well digestible, so that the body can absorb it well. In addition, the meat convinces with a large portion of iron for blood formation and oxygen transport. In addition to the meat, mushrooms also supply various B vitamins, which are important for metabolic processes, a good memory and a balanced mood.

If you don't want to cook with the alcoholic red wine, you can alternatively use dark grape juice and for the acidity some red wine vinegar or lemon juice. Then simply add the two components according to taste.

As a side dish you can use freshly baked baguette, which you can also bake yourself with our recipe.
