This blog has been a bit random this week, focusing on things that are good to eat, but do not fall into any particular category.
This last one is perhaps one of my favorites: a roast beef po-boy. Many places do not slow roast their own beef, but buy it pre cooked. What a pity!
Slow-roasting beef is time-consuming, but you don’t have to stand around and watch it. So roast your own for the best results.
ROAST BEEF FOR A GREAT PO-BOY
1 bone-in (if possible) chuck roast
10-15 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper
Oil 1-2 cups beef broth
Pre-heat oven to 300 F. Salt and pepper the beef aggressively, make slits 1-2 inches deep in the meat and insert the garlic cloves. Now sear in hot oil until well-browned. Place in a Dutch oven, add the stock, cover, and braise for 3-4 hours. Turn every 45 minutes. It is done when it is falling apart.
