This year for Christmas dinner I am taking the lead and changing up tradition!!!
Instead of the usual Pineapple Ham that mom used to make… I am going with BIG beef chuck roast. New home, new meat!!!
Let’s Get COOKIN’
- Remove Chuck Roast from package. Salt all over and refrigerate uncovered on wire rack overnight. Remove Roast from fridge one hour before cooking and season with salt and pepper.
- Preheat Dutch oven, add clarified butter and sear roast on all sides until well browned, 3 minutes per side. Set roast aside.
- Add garlic, onions and celery to pot and saute for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute another 2 minutes. Add tomato paste and saute one more minute.
- Add red wine and potatoes, scrape bottom with wooden spoon.
- Place Roast and fresh thyme back in Dutch oven and add beef stock to cover ⅔ of the way.
- Close lid tightly and place in 300°F oven for 3½ hours or until roast is fork tender.
- Allow roast to rest in juices for 30 minutes. Then remove Roast and vegetables from Dutch oven.
- Place liquid on stovetop and simmer until liquid is reduced by half.
- Slice Roast and spoon sauce over everything. Enjoy!
