Good enough for company, Friends!

Last week, our youngest child graduated from college! This One Pot Asian Braised Beef was the last meal she cooked for her roommates in Seattle, lucky girls.

Abby’s on her way to help change the world with music therapy! I think back on all those years of practice, starting at age 4. We still have Abby’s first violin, so tiny and sweet. Congrats to our baby girl! Abby, we are so proud of you, your beauty is radiant!

“One does not need to have any formal knowledge of music – nor, indeed, to be particularly “musical” – to enjoy music and to respond to it at the deepest levels. Music is part of being human, and there is no human culture in which it is not highly developed and esteemed.” —Olive Sacks

So, I guess you could say I’m looking forward to having Abby home this summer. We’ll be savoring the moments, as well as some of her cooking, like this Pork Meatballs in Aromatic Broth and Lobster Avocado Corn Tacos.

Did I mention how happy we will be to have her home? (wink wink)?

What do you use a Dutch oven for?

Almost any cooking task can be performed in a Dutch oven. Soups and stews: Dutch ovens are perfect for soups and stews because of their size, shape, and thick construction. The heavy metal or ceramic conducts heat well, and can keep food warm for long periods of time.

Ingredients for Asian Braised Beef:

  • Boneless beef chuck (2 pounds)
  • Delicious Asian spices
  • Fresh veggies (like green onion, baby bok choy, avocado, baby bell peppers, and fresh herbs)
  • Cooked jasmine rice
  • Plus all the toppings!

What abou this Le Creuset 7 1/2 quart dutch oven?

We love our Le Creuset Dutch oven for slow-cooking and braising, because it maintains an even and consistent heat.

And don’t you love the GOLD knob? So pretty!

The above color is FIG (isn’t it beautiful?) My second favorite color is the beautiful WHITE dutch oven. [Affiliate link included.]

Super easy to clean, too, the enameled Dutch oven needs no seasoning, and is used for both stovetop and oven.

Having our sons still a big part of our lives has been a true joy. But now with Abby moving to Denver, we have a beautiful new season to look forward to as a family. I’m happy to say we have a direct flight from our little airport to Denver!

I’m sure there will be new memories for us this summer, like the grad party coming up, camping in our Sprinter van, and family kayaking on the beautiful Oregon lakes [check out Lake Hosmer]. I’ll share more about these experiences this summer!

For now, make sure you’re hungry and ENJOY this One Pot Asian Braised Beef recipe, made in a Dutch oven!

ENJOY!

One Pot Asian Braised Beef

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time3 hrs
Total Time3 hrs
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: asian
Keyword: one pot meal
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 pound boneless beef chuck
  • 2 leeks trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 large shallots minced
  • 1/4 c ginger minced (about one 4 inch piece)
  • 5 green onion stalks roughly chopped
  • 1/2 c soy sauce
  • 1 c beef broth
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Baby bok choy
  • Jasmine rice cooked
  • Cilantro roughly chopped
  • Mint roughly chopped
  • Jalapeno sliced
  • Avocado
  • Baby bell peppers

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Coat the bottom of a Dutch oven with oil. Bring the oil to a high temperature. When it begins to smoke lightly, add in the cut of chuck roast. Sear meat for 4-6 minutes until it browns, then flip and repeat.
  • After searing the meat, remove the meat and add more oil. Saute the shallots, leeks, and ginger.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together beef broth, soy sauce, cinnamon, cloves, and coconut sugar. Set aside.
  • Next, add in the beef broth mixture. Using a wooden spoon, scrape the brown bits off the bottom to deglaze the pan. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat. Nestle the beef in the sauce—the liquid should come up halfway on the meat—cover, and place in oven with lid on.
  • Bake for 2-3 hours, or until beef is tender and begins to fall apart.
  • When beef is done, use two forks to shred it, then mix it with the remaining sauce mixture at the bottom of the Dutch oven. Keep warm and set aside.
  • In a medium skillet, heat on medium heat 1 Tbsp. oil; sautee bok choy, starting with the white ends, then add in the leaves later (they cook at different rates). Remove from heat after 6-7 minutes, or until wilted.
  • Serve the braised beef over jasmine rice with sautéed baby bok choy, fresh bell pepper, jalapeño, avocado, lime, mint, and cilantro.

  1. When are the leeks, ginger and green onions added?

  2. Where did you find coconut sugar? I use sugar in the raw. Do you think I could just use this or is the flavor that different?

  3. Where does the leeks, ginger and shallots  that are indicated in the recipe come in ?  Thank you!

  4. That sounds and looks amazing! What a fun summer you have ahead of you!
