HOME > MAIN > MEAT
Prep:20, Cook:3:00
Preparation - Medium
Serves 10


Use best beef, several cuts work: blade roast, cross-rib roast, seven-bone pot roast, arm pot roast, and boneless chuck roast.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 (3-pound) boneless chuck roast, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped onion
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 (14-ounce) can beef broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Fresh thyme leaves (optional garnish)
OO Large, heavy Dutch oven or casserole with cover.

METHOD:
  1. PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
  2. HEAT olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chuck roast with salt and pepper. Add roast to pot; cook 5 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Remove roast from pot. Add onion to pot, saute 8 minutes or until tender.
  3. RETURN browned roast to pot. Add the red wine, thyme sprigs, chopped garlic, beef broth, and bay leaf to pot, bring to a simmer. Cover pot and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until the roast is almost tender.
  4. ADD carrots and potatoes to pot. Cover and bake an additional 1 hour or until vegetables are tender.
  5. SERVE: Remove thyme sprigs and bay leaf from pot, discard. Shred meat with 2 forks, or slice to taste. Serve roast with vegetable mixture and cooking liquid (you can leave this on a low simmer for a while for a thicker sauce). Garnish with thyme leaves, if desired.
