American Beef in Claret

3.1/2-4 lb blade steak (corner of topside)
salt & pepper
1 large chopped onion
2-3 rashers bacon
1-1.1/2 cups claret

Method: Place meat in greased casserole, fat side up. Sprinkle with onion and bacon (chopped); pour in claret. Bake at 375°F (190°C) 3/4 hour for first pound, 25-30 mins/lb for the rest. Test with skewer when cooking time nearly finished. When tender, remove from oven, let stand til warm, then carve into 1/4" slices. Put back in casserole as the original piece of meat. Pour the claret through the slices and let stand. Can be prepared ahead. Reheat with casserole covered in foil. [Serves 6]
