Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 lb chuck roast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 onion roughly chopped approx: 1 cup
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 3 stalks celery roughly chopped approx: 1 cup
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 Tbs tomato paste
  • 2 Tbs parsley
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 5 sprigs thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 275F.
  • In a large dutch over, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the chuck roast with salt and pepper and brown on all sides, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Add garlic, onion, baby carrots, and celery and allow to brown, about 6-8 minutes. Add wine and tomato paste. Use a wooden spoon to mix together and scrape any browned pieces stuck to the pan. Allow to boil down to half the amount, about 5 minutes. Add parsley, rosemary, thyme, and bay leaves. Place chuck roast back into pan and pour crushed tomatoes around it mixing ingredients together.
  • Cover and place in the oven for 1.5 - 2 hours. Remove bay leaves and stems of herbs. Slice thin and serve warm with the sauce!

Notes

Oven times may vary - start checking temperature at 1.5 hours with an internal thermometer! 160F will be a medium roast.
