Grass-Fed Chuck Roast Recipe

Chuck Roast


5-ish pound roast

3 tablespoons oil

3 teaspoons paprika

4 teaspoons salt (one for veggies)

4 teaspoons pepper (one for veggies)

4 teaspoons garlic powder (one for veggies)

2 medium potatoes

2 large carrots

1 small onion


  • Preheat oven to 350° (Try to preheat the oven at least 30 minutes before you cook the roast so it reaches 350 °F (177 °C) when your roast is ready to bake)

  • Place the chuck roast on a flat surface and season the top liberally with an even mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Flip the chuck roast over and season the bottom side as well.

  • Chop the onions, carrots, and potatoes and place them in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of olive oil and a teaspoon each of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir together.

  • Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  • Choose an oven-safe skillet so you can put it directly into the oven.

  • Place the roast in the pan and sear the bottom side for 4-5 minutes or until it turns brown, Then, flip the roast over and sear the other side for 4-5 minutes or until it browns as well.

  • This will create a crust over the roast that helps keep in moisture and flavor while you cook it.

  • Remove the seared chuck roast from the skillet and set it on a plate.

  • Place the chopped vegetables in the skillet for about 5-10 minutes or until the onions become translucent, and the carrots and potatoes have a softer texture.

  • Like the roast, the vegetables will have more time to cook thoroughly while you bake them.

  • Place your chuck roast and vegetables in a baking pan or oven-safe skillet. Cover the top of the chuck roast and vegetables in tin foil, or lid.

  • Set the pan or skillet in the oven and close the door, setting a timer for 3 1/2 hours. Take the roast out of the oven when the meat browns and develops a tender, pull-apart texture.
