Braised Chuck Steak

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Ackman

Chuck Steak is usually tough & tasteless, but not when prepared like this! I like making a gravy with the drippings & serving it with Mashed Potatoes With Carrots Choose a boneless chuck steak that isn't too fat, but has some nice marbling. You can also use Beef Short Ribs for this.

Excellent way to cook a tougher cut of meat! For a change, I added a bit of ketchup, worcestershire sauce, and prepared mustard. Thank you for an easy and efficient way to get dinner on the table! Good served with toasted Quinoa.
