Total time: 3 hours 30 minutes
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 3 hours 10 minutes
|9 New Mexico dry chiles – washed, with stems and seeds removed|
|3 cups water|
|5 pounds boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed of fat|
|½ cup all-purpose flour|
|1 tablespoon kosher salt|
|1 tablespoon black pepper|
|3 tablespoons olive oil|
|1 large yellow onion, chopped|
|2 cups beef stock or water|
- Place chiles and 3 cups water into a medium stockpot, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and steep for 30 minutes to soften. Strain into a bowl, reserving the cooking liquid. Place chiles and some of the liquid into a blender, and purée until smooth. Add more liquid as necessary to form a smooth sauce. Pass sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove any seeds or tough skins; set aside.
- Cut beef into 1- to 2-inch chunks. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Dredge beef chunks in the seasoned flour; set aside.
- Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté onion until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add beef chunks a few at a time, so as not to overcrowd the pot, and cook until evenly brown. Remove seared meat, and continue browning the remaining meat. Return reserved seared meat to the pot.
- Stir in puréed chile mixture. Add beef stock just to cover beef chunks, or to personal preference. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to lowest setting, and simmer for 3 hours, or until meat is tender. If necessary, adjust with more stock during cooking.
