Serve this flavorful pot roast with potatoes and a tossed salad for a delicious family dinner.

Cook Time: 3 hours

Total Time: 3 hours


  • 1 lean chuck roast, boneless, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • grill seasoning, such as steak seasoning or similar, or salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 3 ribs celery, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 large fresh or dried bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon of dried leaf rosemary, crumbled
  • 2 cups frozen pearl onions or fresh peeled pearl onions


Heat oven to 300°. Sprinkle grill seasoning or salt and pepper all over the roast.

In a large Dutch oven or oven safe pot over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Sear the roast on all sides until browned, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the roast to a plate and set aside.

Saute the bacon until almost crisp. Remove the bacon to paper towels to drain. Remove and discard all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings. Add chopped onion and celery to the drippings and cook until just softened. Add the garlic and carrots and saute for 1 minute. Stir in tomato paste, wine, and chicken broth. Put the roast and bacon back in the pot and add the bay leaves, rosemary, and pearl onions. Bring back to a simmer. Cover tightly and bake for 3 hours, turning the roast after 2 hours.

Strain juices from the roast and pour the juices into a saucepan. Cover the roast and vegetables and keep warm.

Put the saucepan with strained juices over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed. Slice the roast and serve with the vegetables and juices.
