This is one of the easiest dinner meals that I have ever prepared. The only hard part about it is to remember to start it early. You can literally dump everything into the crockpot in the morning and have a super delicious dinner ready at night. I have even put frozen chuck in there and still had it turn out wonderful.
Chuck can be a really tough piece of meat and it requires slow and low cooking with moisture. I have tried other cuts of beef, but chuck is still my favorite.
This recipe will also yield a pretty large meal so it can easily be repurposed for a second meal in the week or frozen for a future meal. This meal freezes beautifully, but I do not recommend freezing the rice. It is best to freeze the chuck with the broth and make fresh rice when you serve (learned that the hard way).
