Here’s what’s cooking at the cabin this week: This hearty stew goes together quickly, then simmers all day to tenderize the meat and meld the flavors. Chuck or round are cheaper cuts of beef that can be further tenderized by cutting across the grain when making your cubes. Peas and carrots make this a liberal, low-carb dish.
