Garlic Chuck Roast Recipe

Garlic Chuck Roast Recipe

Having never made a roast before, I experimented with a few ingredients to come up with this hearty all-in-one meal. Not only is it easy, but the tender entree gets terrific flavor from garlic, onion and bay leaves.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2-1/4 hours + standing YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
  • 15 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 5 bay leaves
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 pound baby carrots

Directions

  • 1. With a sharp knife, cut 15 slits in roast; insert garlic into slits. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper.
  • 2. In a Dutch oven, brown meat in oil; drain. Place bay leaves on top of roast; top with onion slices. Drizzle with butter. Add water to pan. Cover and bake at 325° for 1-1/2 hours.
  • 3. Baste roast with pan juices; add carrots. Cover and bake 45-60 minutes longer or until meat and carrots are tender. Discard bay leaves. Let roast stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Thicken pan juices if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
