When you’re used to living on a budget you are also used to shopping what’s on sale. Typically, this means we don’t eat a lot of steaks :). I try to mix it up a bit for the husband though, so we don’t eat chicken every single night. There are a few cuts of meat that you can usually get for decently cheap. One of these is “stew meat” or beef cut up into small chunks. Using a crock-pot is the absolute best way to tenderize cheap cuts of meat. I whipped up this recipe one night when I needed a quick dinner and now it’s one of our staples.
