  • Large Oven-Safe Frying Pan


  • 2 Lbs Chuck Roast
  • 3 Pinches Fresh Cracked Pepper
  • 3 Pinches Kosher Salt
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Shallot sliced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Red Wine
  • 1/4 Cup Beef or Chicken Broth
  • 3 Cups Yukon Gold Potatoes cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 Cups Broccoli cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 Cups Carrots cut into bite-size pieces


  • Pull you chuck roast out of the fridge and throw a modest amount of salt and pepper on both sides. Allow 30 minutes for chuck to reach room temperature for even cooking.
  • Place your oven safe pan on the stove and set on medium-high heat. Pour your 2 tablespoons olive oil in the pan and allow it to get hot (1-3 minutes).
  • Once the pan is nice and hot, throw your chuck roast on and let sear 3 minutes on each side. 
  • Once seared to your liking, take your chuck roast and place it on a cutting board for the time being. Turn the heat down to medium. 
  • Put your sliced shallot and 2 cloves garlic into the hot pan and let caramelize. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Once caramelized, add your 1/4 cup red wine and 1/4 cup beef/chicken broth.
  • Place the chuck roast back on the pan and wrap the top of the pan with tin foil. Set pan in the oven (350°F) for 2.5 - 3 hours
  • Take the pan out of the oven (leave the oven on 350°F!) and add your 3 cups Yukon potatoes, 3 cups broccoli and 2 cups of carrots. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover the pan with tin foil and place in the oven (350°F) for 40 more minutes.
  • There you have it. Beautiful oven roasted chuck steak that falls right apart.
