Chipotle Braised Beef
2 Tbs. olive oil
3 lbs. beef chuck roast
1 can chipotles in adobo
1/2 red onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, smashed
2-3 cups beef broth
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Trim the chuck roast of any excess exterior fat. Season generously with salt. In a large dutch oven or oven safe pan, heat olive oil over medium/medium-high heat. Place the meat in the pan and brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Add the beef broth, red onion, garlic, and as many chipotles as desired (I used all of them). The beef broth should come almost to the top of the meat, but not cover it. Bring the liquid to a simmer, then cover the pan and place it in the oven. Cook for 3-1/2 hours. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Using your fingers or a fork, pull the tender beef into small pieces, discarding any fatty bits.
Use for tacos, enchiladas, sandwiches, etc...
