Sent by ChristiEditor: Christi, yes, boiling beef is basically beef for stew. The word "boiling" is deceptive, though, since meat really shouldn't be boiled. (It will get tough.) After browning the meat and adding liquids, bring to a light simmer then reduce the heat so that it is just bubbling every now and then. This will give you the most tender meat; true, hard boiling will make meat stringy and tough. (Too much heat!)
As far as stock is concerned, we don't have a good beef stock recipe here, but consult the chicken stock recipe (very similar) and also we'll ask the readers: what would you do with boiling beef, and what's your method for making beef stock?
