    Beef Chuck, 1 lb.
    1/2 Large Onion, Diced
    3 Cloves of Garlic, Chopped
    Potatoes-2 large or 4 small, Chopped
    4 Medium Carrots, Chopped
    1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
    4 Cups of Water
    1 Tsp. Black Pepper
    1 Tsp. Salt


Heat a large pan over medium heat. When hot add olive oil to pan.

Season beef chuck with salt and pepper and add to pan. Brown on each side for about 5 minutes.

Keep beef in center of pan and arrange onions and garlic around beef at sides of the pan. Shake pan, stirring onions and garlic until browned.

Add the 4 cups of water to pan, covering beef about half-way. Cover with lid and allow to cook undisturbed for about 15 minutes.

Add carrots and potatoes, cover pan, and allow to cook for about 20 to 25 minutes. Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a lively boil.

Cook as long as necessary to achieve fork-tender potatoes and carrots. Beef should be very soft and easy to pull apart with a fork.

Before serving, transfer beef to a cutting board, to separate meat from fat and cut meat into small chunks. Transfer beef chunks back into broth with vegetables. Makes very good leftovers.
