    Default Big deal

    Friend gave me the largest chuck roast I ever saw. He raises his own
    cattle, mostly Angus. I chilled it overnight in the freezer then took
    all the meat off the bone(s), discarded the gristle and fat, cut the
    lean meat into one inch cubes and then ground them in the KA meat
    grinder. Came out looking good. Ended up with three one pound packages
    vacuum sealed and in the freezer. Took the bones and the meat left on
    them, put them into the slow cooker with sixteen ounces of beef broth,
    freshly ground black pepper, a little smoked paprika, a dash of chipotle
    powder, and a pinch of salt. Once that is cooked down somewhat I will
    add a cup of pearl barley, a half cup each of chopped carrots and
    celery, some onion and garlic and dinner tonight will be a sort of beef
    and barley soup.

    Ground meat will be used for burger, meat sauces, or meatloaf. Nice
    grass fed beef.

    Chuck roast is not that easy to find these days in CO but it makes
    divine pot roast.

    Ground beef in our house is usually made into lightly spiced meatballs
    that are frozen and later used for spaghetti, meatball subs, or a
    variant of Swedish meatballs.

    Your soup sounds delicious. I also add a can of chopped tomatoes.

    Very common around here, generally on sale in three-roast packages,
    heavily discounted. Last package I bought contained three three-pound
    roasts at ninety-nine cents a pound. Obviously a loss leader sale.

    I have never mastered meat balls. I generally just make a red sauce with
    browned hamburger meat, peppers, mushrooms,onions, etc. Eat it over all
    kinds of pasta, mostly over whole wheat spaghetti.

    Sometimes I add a can of diced tomatoes or dice up some fresh ones. This
    time I didn't, I don't eat a lot of tomatoes anymore due to a mild case
    of GERD. As long as I don't eat to much acidic food I do fine.

    We picked about a pint of crowder peas out of the garden today, that's
    after shelling. The row of peas is only about eight feet long and is
    producing well. Not enough to can but enough to eat fresh every few
    days. The rest of the summer garden is about shot, one of the tomato
    plants is recovering from drought and a couple of pepper plants were
    too. Unfortunately they were volunteer and hot as Hades so they were
    sacrificed to the compost gods.
