recipe of the week.

smoky beef tacos by martha stewart

serves 8
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 8 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (about 3 pounds), excess fat trimmed
  • 16 corn tortillas (6-inch), lightly toasted (we used hard tacos)
preheat oven to 350 degrees. in a heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid, stir together chiles, ketchup, 1 cup water, garlic, oregano, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. cut beef into 4 equal pieces. add to pot, and turn to coat. cover, and bring to a boil; transfer pot to oven. bake, covered, until beef is fork-tender, about 2 1/2 hours. transfer beef to a bowl. with a large spoon, skim off and discard fat from cooking liquid. shred beef with two forks; moisten with cooking liquid as needed. season with salt and pepper. serve beef with tortillas and desired toppings.

I don't currently have a cast iron pot so I used my stoneware piece instead and covered it with foil. and it worked like a dream.

perfect for yet another cold snowy day.
