Coconut Beef Stew

Coconut Beef Stew

Chuck steak is a less expensive cut and a bit tougher, so it takes a bit of care to make a tasty dish.  It is well marbled and has a good amount of fat. 

This dish takes about 30 minutes of prep time and 2 hours to cook.  It can be served immediately or refrigerated and re-heated the next day.  Letting it sit over night – usually makes it taste richer.
