Needs to be cooked slowly, rub it with oil crushed garlic s/p brown in hot pan, into crockpot sit it on up turned plate so it off bottom of cooker and dosent dry out, de glaze pan with 1/2-1cup red wine tip over roast cook. Rest and slice.

Its a piece of meat my mother has roasted, which is then only suitable to be chucked out.

I have the recipe but just have never seen a chuck roast before? I know the chuck steak for stews. But I need a roast size.

Chef_rusty-bones, Jan 24, 7:15 pm

It's a crock pot recipe to, not roasted.

Probably a good piece to stuff with something tasty, tie with string and roast

Chef_rainrain1, Jan 24, 7:24 pm

its probably something like what americans call pot roast

Chuck roast sold in a piece is a more economical cut of beef for a roast, its usually sold as steak to chop into pieces and make a stew with but some butchers do this now. Still lovely slow cooked, or pot roasted.

I would consider it to be shoulder meat, definitely a stew.

Chef_peter148, Jan 24, 11:38 pm

It's from the shoulder area, full of flavour, and should be braised or pot-roasted. Don't even think about roasting it in the normal way, because it will be tough and stringy. Brown it all over in a little fat, drain most of the fat off, then lay the meat on a bed of vegetables like carrots, onions, celery, etc. Add good stock, then cover tightly and cook very slowly until it is tender. Lift the meat out and make gravy of the stock. Serve with your usual vegetables. Enjoy.
