 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   lb           Chuck steak, boned/trimmed
    3       tb           Peanut oil
    1       md           White onion, peeled/sliced
    2       c            Beef stock (up to 3 cups)
    1       c            Blackberries
    1       tb           Honey
                         Salt to taste
 
   Broil the chuck steak in the oven until brown on both
   sides. In the old days this would have been done over
   the fire, so you might wish to quickly barbeque the
   meat in order to increase the flavor. Set the meat
   aside to cool.
   
   In a Dutch oven heat the oil and brown the onions. Cut
   the meat into bite-size pieces and add to the pot. Add
   the blackberries and enough beef stock to barely cover
   the meat. Stir in the honey and simmer the meat,
   covered, until it is very tender, about 1 hour. If the
   berries are too tart add more honey to taste. Add salt
   and serve in bowls.
