I have definitely downgraded the cuts I buy, in part because I am eating meat much more often (atkins.) I used to buy the occasional ribeye for the grill. Now I regularly buy chuck, which is 1/4 the price, and to tell you the truth, tastes pretty darn delicious. I hardly ever eat out.

A local news report I watched just this evening claim another 75-100% increase in beef prices by next summer.

Of course as demand shifts to poultry and pork, we can expect increases there also.

Now I regularly buy chuck, which is 1/4 the price

In a crockpot/slowcooker, stack: 1 boneless chuck roast, rubbed down with 1 package taco seasoning
1 chopped onion
1 cup dry pinto beans
1 can RoTel Tomatoes
1 can chopped green chilies
1 cup water
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. DO NOT STIR. DO NOT UNCOVER. After 10 hours, drain off excess liquid. Using 2 large meatforks, shred meat and bean mixture. Stir mixture until thoroughly mixed. Serve on flour tortillas with choices of cheese, sour cream, etc.

This is also a good thing to cook during major FR moments (2000 post-election crisis, 9-11, etc.)

Are RoTelTomatoes a brand, or is it a special treatment of the tomatoes?

Another question. Wouldn't it be okay to prepare this without the beans? (Adkins, you know?)

RoTel is a brand of tomatoes that are spiced up with Jalapeno chilis. It is widely available in Texas but I don't know if it is country wide. Regular tomatoes should work if you don't like it spicey.

As a side note there is a band called Rotel and the Hot Tomatoes.

You know, if this keeps up, JimRob is going to have to create a "recipe exchange" section of FR.

Of course, the big question of the day is "How many carbs?"
