ISO - Angus Chuck Roast cooking ideas

Looked yummy on the shelf. Was thinking about stuffing it with some garlic, rosemary and thyme, truss and roast.

Any other ideas?

how about making and herb flour to rub on the meat, sear it in evoo and butter on all sides, put in crock pot with a bottle of red wine, a few sprigs of thyme and some onions/carrots/celery, let it cook until falling apart. blend veggies into remaining liquid to make gravy.

or, since fall's coming, how about a sauerbraten?

The herb flour....use fresh or dried? I presume this will creat a crust of some sort or just thicken the liquid?

Then what, serve like a stew?

What kind of roast is it? Is it an oven roast or a pot roast?

Huh?


Dunno, looks like a big mis-shapen steak.

Cheaper roast cuts, such as a chuck roast, are too tough to roast in the oven and end up being pot roasts that are braised.

Higher quality cuts, such as a standing rib roast, are dry cooked in a roasting pan in the oven.

How your roast is cooked depends on the cut.

Not a rib roast.

Chuck roast.

Here's a fast and easy way to prep it--and it makes it's own gravy at the same time.

Take the roast, put a little olive oil in the bottom of the pan. Take flour mix in salt and pepper and press the meat into the flour on both sides, shake off the excess. Sear the roast on both sides in the olive oil. Deglaze with a little wine(I prefer red for this). You could also just use water if you're out. Drop in potatoes, carrots, onions (or leeks, etc) what ever veggies you like.

Here is the fun part--get a can of tomato Bisque soup(i.e. Campbells). Mix it up with a can of water and pour it over the meat and veggies. Pop it into a 350 degree oven with a lid on it and let it cook until the veggies are tender.

When it's done you have a nice roast with a tomato gravy..... It works great with swiss steak too...

Season with salt and pepper and sear it. Put it into a slowcooker or dutch oven with some veggies, wine and beef broth, some thyme or rosemary and simmer for 3-4 hours or until the roast is fork tender.
