Beef stew is one of those dishes that can be made a hundred different ways. You can use a wide variety of vegetables and spices, and different recipes will even use different cuts of beef.
We've decided to use chuck roast in this recipe for a few reasons. To begin with, it's a budget cut that's easy to find in your grocery store. Everyone can appreciate that! Additionally, chuck roast, which comes from the shoulder, stands up really well to cooking methods like braising and stewing. It's a tougher cut of meat, but that doesn't matter once you've cooked it in a recipe like this. Plus, it has plenty of marbling, which adds tons of flavor. We think it's a total win in this easy beef stew recipe!
