This is the closest thing I've ever had to a truly melt-in-your-mouth beef recipe and the best part is it can work on any cut of meat.

What is your favorite meat?

Imagine slow-cooked meat drizzled with a thick savory sauce.

Oh, you won’t need any type of knife here.

You can use your fork and spoon, and that meat will fall apart.

Cooking fork-tender meat

We apologize, but there is no better way to describe Gorka Barredo’s beautiful recipe he shared.

The meat is so tender that they melt in your mouth.

Red wine sauce rolls

Barredo’s video has over 4M views.

The recipe is really simple and it will make you fall in love with it once you taste it.

According to the owner of the YouTube channel ¡Que Viva La Cocina!, you can use any meat you want, but for his recipe, he chose beef.

Leave oil in pan

Don’t throw away the excess cooking oil, just leave it in the pan.

Once you have removed the meat, turn on the stove again and add your chopped onions.

Add your carrots, red and green bell peppers, crushed garlic, and of course, salt and pepper to taste.

Saute all the ingredients together for 10 minutes on medium heat.

Once all your vegetables are cooked add the meat back to the pan.

Time for the wine and broth.

Bring everything to a boil and allow it to cook for three to four hours over low heat.

Using a pressure cooker?

Follow the same process as above but let it cook for 40 minutes.

For a normal saucepan, allow it to cook for about half the time allotted, then cover it and continue cooking.

When the meat is soft, carefully remove it from your pan and set aside.

Blending the sauce

Using a blender or food processor, get your sauce and blend it until smooth.

Put it back into your saucepan and let it simmer until the sauce has oxygenated and has darkened in color.

Once you have achieved your desired color, put the meat back in.

It will be fork-tender

Be very careful and don’t use any utensils for this step because the meat is already really soft.

Barredo swirled the pot until all the sauce had covered the meat.

After around five minutes, you’re done.

Serve with mashed potatoes, beans, corn, or whatever side dish you want.

The meat is so soft that you can use a spoon to cut it.

And that sauce? It’s so thick and flavorful that you’ll ask for another serving.
