  • (4 pounds) Beef Chuck Roast
  • (2 tbsp) Unsalted Butter
  • (1 tbsp) Vegetable Oil
  • (1) Large Yellow Onion (Peeled and cut into large wedges)
  • (6) Whole Carrots
  • (4) Potatoes (cut into large peices)
  • (2) Stalks Celery (cut into large pieces)
  • (2 sprigs) Fresh Rosemary (or 2 tsp dried rosemary)
  • (2 cloves) Garlic (peeled) (or 1 tbsp of garlic powder)
  • (2) Bay Leaves
  • (6 oz) Tomato Paste (or tomato sauce, your preference)
  • (1 cup) Red Wine
  • (2 cups) Beef Stock
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Season the beef on all sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the butter and vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot and the butter is melted, add the seasoned beef and sear until golden brown on all sides. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  3. Toss the onion, garlic, carrots, celery, potatoes, and rosemary in the pan. Allow cooking, stirring occasionally, until browned.
  4. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Deglaze the pan with the red wine, scraping up the brown bits from the bottom, and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Place the seared beef back in the pan top with the beef stock, and add bay leaves.
  7. Cover and transfer to the preheated oven. Cook until the beef is tender and shreds easily, about 4 hours.
  8. Season with more salt and pepper if needed. Remove the bay leaves before serving. Serve hot with desired sides.

    Beef Chuck Roast Internal Temp

    When it's ready, the chuck roast will read about 190 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit on a meat thermometer. However, rather than checking the internal temp of the chuck roast in the oven, check for its tenderness according to whether it's fork-tender. If you can shred it easily with a fork, it's done.
