Rhubarb Chickpea Chuck

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by KristinB

This is a family favorite. My aunt found it in a local newspaper about 30 years ago--it won first prize in a rhubarb recipe contest. It was submitted by a Mrs Marcella Strand. The meat will be very tender in a slightly sour sauce. Very good over mashed potatoes or with French bread.

This was a great recipe. I threw it in the crock pot and served it with garlic mashed potatoes.
