Cumin Beef with Sweet Potatoes

Cubed chuck roast braised until falling apart… slurp!   This is an easy & delicious one pot crockpot recipe but can also be made stovetop by simmering covered ~ 2 hours.  When I make it on the stovetop I  like to roast the sweet potatoes separately from the beef to add more texture to the dish.   If I’m in a bigger hurry, all the ingredients go in the crockpot at the same time.

Insta Pot users:  Sear the meats first and set aside.  Toss all ingredients into the pot and set for 45 minutes. Follow cool down instructions.   If time is low throw it all without searin’  & walk away.
