TIPS ON BUYING BEEF FOR A ONE POT MEAL

Most new cooks to the home, I'm talking married newlyweds that don't have a clue on cooking, but actually can cook a little bit. I mean, the not real hopeless peeps, they can make an omelet, scrambled eggs, and use the slow cooker.

But if you are going to cook for a few people in your home, you can save money by purchasing inexpensive beef and make a stew out of it. If you've never made a stew before here are some of the cuts you can use and by stewing it, will make a nice juicy soft meaty meal.

Chuck roast- This cut comes from the shoulder part of the cattle so its muscles are worked meaning the meat is somewhat tough, so stewing Chuck parts is a good way to save money.

This piece of Chuck roast is about 3.5 lbs. and can feed about 6-8 people if you made a stew by cutting it into bite size pieces, and adding potatoes, carrots, celery and other flavorings to the pot to make a stew. So for about 20 bucks with all ingredients to make a stew you can feed a family of 6 for sure. Maybe more, or 1 hungry dude haha.
