Beef chuck is an overlooked cut of meat. But, it’s inexpensive. It’s a great way to serve a family very inexpensively. If it’s not cooked correctly, however, it can be stringy or tough. But, this recipe cooks this cut low and slow, until it’s tender and full of flavor. We have dressed up this exquisite piece of meat with fresh thyme and caramelized shallots and a rich red wine sauce to push this dish over the edge of decadence.
