  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 pounds chuck roast, boneless and fat trimmed
  • 3 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 4 cloves peeled garlic
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 large chopped carrots
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed (or potato of choice)


  • Preheat oven to 275° F.
  • Dry the chuck roast with a paper towel. On a plate combine a flour, a generous amount of salt, and black pepper. Stir well. Dredge the chuck roast on all sides into the flour mixture.
  • In a deep dutch oven, melt together the butter and olive oil on high heat (but not smoking). Sear all sides of the chuck roast until browned, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer the beef to a plate.
  • Reduce heat to medium-high. Add the broth, tomato sauce, seasonings and herbs. Mix well, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pot to loosen up any brwon bits.
  • Add in the seared beef, carrots, and onions. Cover, and bake in the oven for a minimum of 2 hours or until the beef is fork tender and reaches an internal temperature of 145° F.
  • Remove from the oven, and add chopped potatoes. Cover and cook for an additional 45 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
