Baby it’s cold outside…

Let’s have a satisfying warming pot roast for dinner. The beauty of this kind of recipe is that time and heat do most of the work. With a little cutting and chopping, you can add it all together in the Dutch oven, walk away and then come back hungry for dinner. Part of the experience is having your appetite prepared by all of the delicious smells that will fill the house and pleasantly waft your direction.

We suggest this recipe from Serious Eats. Don’t forget the sear! It’s an import step in the process and will keep the flavor and tenderness of your B Bar chuck roast intact through the long cooking process. You can use a slow over or crock pot for this recipe but experience has shown that the best flavor is developed in a Dutch oven placed in the oven.

Beef stew is a little bit like a blank canvas. You can start with the basics and add and customize each dish to suit what you have on hand and to what your company enjoys. Each time the final result can be a little different if you desire.

Stew for me, always brings to mind cold hunting trips in the Montana mountains and the relief and warmth that comes from pulling a steamy beefy bowl of stew up to my nose. You get back to camp and warm up a meal in the wall tent, and then depending on how cold the trip has been, sometimes you want to hug the bowl as much as eat it.

Check out this stew recipe from Creative Healthy Family. B Bar Ranch Beef hopes to be apart of the stories and memories you make around delicious bowls of beefy goodness.
