Question about this beef recipe

From Southern Living Magazine, May 2006: (Cannot post link because I do not have enough posts, but it can also be found on myrecipes.com)


http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/re...ipe_id=1187107


My question is can I use ground beef instead of the beef chuck roast? I'm a new cook

Yes. However, if you can use ground chuck it would be better. With ordinary Ground beef (hamburger) you may have to use more than the 2 lbs. called for in the recipe, because a lot more fat will be cooked out leaving less meat. You will probably need to cook 2-3/4 pounds of ground beef to equal the same amound of boneless chuck roast, but only 2-1/4 pounds of ground chuck.

You can really use any cut of beef, but as Selkie pointed out because the meat had been ground you will lose more weight because of the fat loss.

Go with the chuck roast!!! Its so good shredded!!

Using ground chuck or beef has one big drawback. When you cook it long term it has a tendency to break down and get powdery.
