The best stew meat for low carb beef stew
The cut of your meat is what matters most. The best and also least expensive choice is chuck. You can find pre-cut, pre-packaged beef in most food stores. Some are even labeled "stew meat." If this is easiest for you, use that. However, you don't really know what kind of meat you're getting. Make sure to ask the butcher to cut some fresh cubes of chuck beef. This type comes from the cow's shoulder, and although it is usually a more tough cut of meat, it is ideal for low and slow cooking like beef stews.
