At that temperature, the so-called tougher of chewier cuts of meat begin to break down and become meltingly tender and a joy to eat. Basic ingredients can blend into something spectacular. Something as simple as a beef stew using inexpensive ingredients can become a delicious healthy meal the whole family can enjoy." - Dean Edwards
