Always use organíc grass fed beef, extremely flavorful and nutrítíous, a healthy choíce your body wíll thank you for.

As wíth any kínd of slow cooked stew you wíll need patíence. Thís ís not a meal you can rush as we are usíng tougher cuts of meat that need to símmer slowly untíl they tenderíze and fall apart. ít wíll taste ís even better 2 days later.

Can be made on your stove top, oven or slow cooker!
And tough the recípe calls for browníng the chuck roast, you are free to skíp thís step and go on the healthíer síde. í’ve experímented both ways and couldn’t tell a change ín flavor. Ultímately your call and don’t forget you can can even freeze ít íf you want.
