I hope you have been catching up on Damnigottareadthis and you will see why the recipes have not been here. Well, today, I am ready to go again and I hope you will try this recipe. It is absolutely delicious.

  • 1 – 3-4 lb. boneless chuck roast
  • 1 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion wedges
  • 2 garlic cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 – 10 9z. can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 2 tbsp. worchestershire sauce
  • 1 square beef bouillon
  • 2 cups beef stock

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add the seasoning salt, salt and pepper to a small bowl. Rub the seasoning into the roast on both sides.

Heat oil in a Le Creuset dutch oven and brown the roast, browning on all sides. Place the meat in a roaster pan. Add onions and garlic to skillet and saute for 1 – 2 minutes to absorb the leftover roast juice. Place into the roaster pan with the meat and bay leaves.

Combine the mushroom soup, wine, Worchestershire sauce and beef bouillon into a bowl. Pour over the roast. Add the beef stock.

Cover pan with foil and bake for 3 – 3 1/2 hours or until tender. Remove and discard the bay leaves. During the last hour of baking time, add 10-12 baby potatoes and 3 coarsely chopped carrots. Re-cover pan and continue cooking.

This truly is a great meal. Add a crispy chilled salad, small dinner roll and, of course, theĀ  glass of Merlot.
