Cheap meat, great taste. It's what braising is all about. I like the whole idea of taking a cheap cut of beef and making it taste fantastic. And braising brings bonuses like you get your vegetables and sauce/gravy at the same time.
This summer, we've been making our own fresh tomato sauce and salsa (ole!). I'm warning you...you 'll never go back to the bottle after enjoying the killer flavor of fresh tomato sauce.
