My Favorite Chuck Roast Recipe

#1 Disclaimer: I only make this recipe with 100% GRASS FED BEEF Chuck Roast. (I know, Chuck Roast is much fattier than other roasts. However, because it is 100% Grass Fed, the meat has a different fat content and consistency than grain fed / feed lot raised beef.)The cooking temperature and time reflect the unique make-up of this healthier meat.

  • Using a fillet knife, remove as much of the fat as possible from the roast.
  • Preheat an iron skillet / dutch oven at 225 degrees F.
  • Place the roast in the hot skillet. (You may have pieces that are not attached to the main roast anymore. That's ok. Just place all of the pieces in a small pile in the skillet.
  • Sprinkle generously with dried chopped onions or 1-2 medium sized onions, minced.
  • Sprinkle with additional seasoning of your choice: garlic powder, salt, pepper.
  • DO NOT add any liquid.
  • Cover the roast with the lid or cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Cook at 225 degrees F for 4-5 hours.
This roast will make its own juice and will be fork tender at the end of its cooking time. Leftovers from this roast make great sandwiches!
