Perfect Pot Roast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 pound chuck roast
  • 1 onion (medium dice)
  • 2 carrots (peeled, 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 cups chicken or beef broth
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Preheat oven to 300ºF. In a large Dutch oven add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Season meat with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add meat to the Dutch oven and cook until browned on all sides, about 7-9 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • Add onions and carrots and cook until slightly tender and browned. Add the thyme and cook an additional minute. Add the stock, scraping the browned bits up from the bottom of the pan. Add the chuck roast back to the pot and bring liquid to a simmer. Cover the Dutch oven, place in the oven and cook for 3 hours or until the meat is tender. Baste the meat throughout the 3 hours.
  • When tender, remove from the oven. Slice the meat and serve with onions and carrots. Spoon additional braising liquid over the top.
