Season beef well with salt and pepper; marinate in wine for about 4 hours. Remove beef, draining well; save marinade. Brown beef cubes on all sides in oil in heavy skillet. Add half of reserved marinade to meat in skillet; simmer until liquid evaporates. Remove meat and keep warm. Add tomato paste to skillet and stir for 1 minute on low heat.
