American Wagyu Chuck Roast
The Juicy Details
Some of the toughest challenges we face in life produce the most satisfying results, and that's no different for some of the most beloved cuts of beef. Like the undisputed king of smoked meats, brisket, The Good Silver Steak Co.'s American Wagyu Chuck Roasts are tough, chewy pieces of meat that transform into tender bites when given time.
When you think of chuck roast, you probably picture a bowl of home cooked pot roast being served up during family dinner. But no matter how good that recipe that's been passed down from prior generations is, the extensive marbling of our American Wagyu Chuck Roast is sure to add enhanced flavor without changing a single ingredient. What more could you ask for than an easy-to-prepare and flavorful cut of beef that conjures fond memories?
For the most incredible pot roast you'll ever experience, all you need is a heavy-duty pot, dutch oven, or slow cooker. Best of all, if using a pot or dutch oven, this is a one-pot dish that minimizes cleanup while maximizing taste. Start by preheating your oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, take your Good Silver American Wagyu Chuck Roast out of the refrigerator to come to room temperature.
- Generously season the meat with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you love.
- Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a pot or dutch oven and add roughly chopped onions. Remove when browned but not burnt.
- Add peeled and chopped carrots and toss until lightly browned. After about a minute, remove and add to reserved onions.
- Add a little more oil and then sear your American Wagyu Chuck Roast until nicely browned all over, then remove.
- Leave the burner on and add a cup of beef broth or red wine to deglaze the pan. Use a whisk or wooden spoon to scrape the browned bits off the bottom.
- Add your American Wagyu Chuck Roast back to the pot (or slow cooker at this point) and pour in enough beef broth to cover the bottom half of the roast.
- Add onions, carrots, and any herbs you like.
- Cover with a lid and slow cook in the oven or crockpot for about an hour per pound. The chuck roast is ready when it's fall-apart tender.
Is there anything more satisfying than pot roast served with buttery mashed potatoes topped with some of the jus from the roast? To add another layer of flavor, we suggest serving the roast and veggies over a piece of toasted garlic bread. Add a side of green beans or brussels sprouts, and you have a well-rounded meal that's hard to beat.
When pairing an American Wagyu Chuck Roast with wine, look for a varietal as rustic as the dish itself. A Côtes du Rhône, cabernet, or Sangiovese-based blend helps the richness of the dish shine without overpowering or being overpowered. A rich, malted Belgian amber ale is a terrific beer pairing because of the slight sweetness it provides. If a cocktail is your style, look to a whiskey-forward classic like a Manhattan or Old Fashioned to enhance your meal. Now, all that's left to do is sip, slice, and savor.
