Flank steak in beef stew?

Megiac | Jul 20, 2008 03:52 PM

Dinner tonight is supposed to be a beef stew with summer vegetables. It was originally going to be a veal stew, but apparently no butcher in town sells any veal besides chops and scallopine. I sent the husband to the market to get meat for the stew, and he came back with flank steak. He says that the butcher told him it would be great in stew (this is also the same guy who if given a grocery list asking for a 14.5 oz can of chopped tomatoes will come back with a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes EVERY.SINGLE.TIME). Really? It seems to me like flank steak is too lean for stew meat. What do you think?
