The Best Braised Beef Ragu With Polenta

Get your crock pot cooking with this very delicious Beef Ragu and Polenta.

My hubby is a very big fan of anything that is saucy. And that allows me to be very creative and adventurous when it comes to cooking. But one thing he doesn’t love much is beef that isn’t cooked as tender as possible. He hates chewy anything that resembles like an old tire (the types that you can’t swallow at all).

Thanks to my ever loyal crock pot, I could cook my hubby the most tender and sauciest beef dishes I could get a hold of. Here’s one recipe that combines flavor and tenderness that will blow anyone’s mind away.
