Ingredients

  • 1 (3 lb) boneless chuck roast
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion , coarsely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can beef broth
  • 3/4 cup dry red wine (optional)

  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 lbs yukon gold potatoes , cleaned then diced into 1 1/2 inch pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Heat olive oil in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season roast all over with salt and pepper, then add roast to pot and brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove roast to cutting board (or plate), add onions to pan and saute until they begin to brown, about 4 - 5 minutes, adding in garlic during last minute. Return roast to pan, pour beef broth and optional red wine over roast. Add thyme, rosemary and bay leaf to broth. Bring to a simmer, then cover pot with lid and transfer to oven and cook 2 hours.
  2. Remove from oven, add carrots and potatoes to pot and season with salt and pepper. Return to oven and cook 1 - 1 1/2 hours longer until roast and veggies are tender. Remove roast and shred or cut into large pieces, while removing fat, then return to pot. Remove bay leaf and herb sprigs. Serve warm.
