Beef and Carrots with Gravy


We are at the point of winter where one foot is still in cold weather, but we can see spring in the horizon.  This beef and carrots with gravy dish is perfect for this time of year.

Next time you go grocery shopping, look for beef chuck boneless eye steak.  It’s super economical at around $4 – $5 a pound.  It does have a bit of fat on it though, so after I trimmed a lot of the fat, I was left with just over a pound of meat.

I have two new products to me that I have been using for everything.  First though, if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I love Dak’s steakhouse seasoning.  The mustard seeds are my favorite part.  I think my discount code still works – its Bizzy10 for 10% off.  Even though all the seasonings are salt free, I do add salt, but I am able to control it.

Next up is MaD seasoning.  A new friend of mine on Instagram makes it – it’s literally the best seasoning salt I’ve ever tried.  Not sponsored at all, but if you want to check it out, you can find it here.

Lastly, Super-Fuzed oil is amazing on so many things, from saute to using it as a finishing oil – it’s so flavorful.   For this dish, I tossed the carrots in two teaspoons of the oil before adding them to the pot.  So good!  (my discount code for that is 12MYBIZZYKIT to get 12% off).  

Don’t skip the step of searing the beef before adding the beef broth – your beef will be extra flavorful if you do this step.
