Shredded Beef Stew
Instead of using traditional chopped stew meat we used a chuck roast we had on hand and shredded the roast to create a shredded beef stew. It was perfect because we cooked the roast in the crock pot and were able to use all of the leftover juices for the stew, adding some serious meaty flavor. Including the beef and broth, this shredded beef stew only has seven ingredients so it is very simple and easy to make. The cooking time is long, but it is only about 15 minutes of active cooking time to get this hearty stew that is a meal in a bowl.
