Easy Beef Stew in a Bread Bowl

A trick to keeping ingredients at a minimum: use pre-made products. But since we aspire to some culinary awesomeness, we’re going to recommend getting the best prepared product there is. For instance, this bread bowl recipe calls for 18 ounces of beef-veggie soup—go for the best brand and nutrition in your price range. After that, it’s a matter of heating the stuff up and chucking it into a prepared crusty roll (basically treat it like a jack-o-lantern, except instead of hollowing it out, you just push the crumbs down). The “easy” bonus: this is one dish where eating and cleaning up after yourself are one and the same.

  • This recipe for slow roasted beef can’t be correct! Not enough meat (and the butcher laughed at me when I asked for a 1 lb. boneless chuck roast) and WAY too much liquid.

    Any suggestions?

    Not sure which recipe you're referring to - Slow Cooker Beef Short Ribs calls for "2 pounds well-trimmed boneless beef short ribs," Roasted Beef Tenderloin calls for "1 3-pound beef tenderloin piece (large end), trimmed." assuming its former recipe, maybe the 2 pounds vs. 1 pound chuck roast you asked for makes up for issue with too much liquid?

  • I was referencing the recipe that was the lead in the article...not the ribs or tenderloin.

    Hmmm this is a bit confusing. Seems like perhaps instead of 1 lb boneless chuck roast it should probably say 1 (2 to 3 lb) boneless chuck roast. It looks like that large quantity of liquid would reduce somewhat in braising, and then further reduce as a sauce is made. but ratio of meat to liquid seems off. apologies, not a good choice in recipe.
