Today I made a chuck roast, it was tender and delicious and I just thought it had a great simple flavor.
What you'll need
2-3lb Chuck Roast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2tsp onion powder
2tsp garlic powder
I marinated this chuck roast overnight - from about 10pm to 10am, I poured enough red wine to cover half of it - it's better if you can cover 2/3 of it but I only had enough wine to do half.
I poked holes in the meat to tenderize it a little bit and added the salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to the top of the roast.
Around 10am everything went into an oven pan - you can marinate in an oven pan then just put it in the oven - I didn't happen to think to do this at the time. I set the oven at 250º and let it cook until 6p.m.
It just fell apart like nothing, it was great. The only way it could have been more tender is if I had added more wine to the marinade.
Another way to marinate this is by using grape juice and sprite (for those opposed to using alcohol).
Super yummy, hope you enjoy!
