Beef Ragu

Beef Ragu

My Beef Ragu recipe cooks for hours until the beef is incredibly tender and flavorful. Serve it with pappardelle pasta for a hearty and impressive dinner!

My version is rich, thick, hearty, and warm-you-straight-down-to-your-toes satisfying. It is *perfect* cold weather comfort food, and takes only 30 minutes to prep before going in the oven. You’ll love how tender the meat gets after cooking for hours.


3 lb (1.4 kg) chuck roast patted dry and cut into fist-sized pieces

1 teaspoon table salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper
