Braised Beef Chuck Roast with Stew Veggies

Recipes, Smart Eating

Beef often gets skipped on menus due to some concern about heart health, but studies show that beef is a good source of many nutrients including protein, vitamins B6 and B12, zinc, iron, niacin, phosphorus, and potassium. When eaten as part of a healthy diet that includes adequate amounts of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and other lean proteins, it contributes to your overall health. Choosing a beef product that’s lower in fat, like the one in this recipe, ensures that you still get all of the nutrients including protein, but without the excess fat.
