Beer-Braised Chuck ROAST


  • 1 Chuck Roast, about 4 lb 
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-2 large onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 bottle of good beer (like Barn Henge Pale Ale from Yokley Arms Brewhaus)
  • 1 Cup water or use more beer
  • 1 to 2 tsp salt
  • ½ to 1 tsp ground pepper
  • Thyme (fresh or dried), a couple of sprigs
  • Rosemary (fresh or dried), a couple of sprigs



Cutting board, Chef's knife, tongs, Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot (that can go into the oven), extra plate or bowl to hold Chuck Roast.



Preheat oven to 325F

Place your Dutch oven on the stove on med-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Season roast with salt and pepper. Brown the chuck roast on all sides to caramelize the beef. Remove and set aside. 

Add the sliced onions and sauté until translucent and soft. Add garlic to the onions and sauté for another 2 minutes. Toss in thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper, to taste. Sauté for another 2 minutes. 

Add one good beer and one cup of water to the pot. Bring to a boil. Return the chuck roast to the pot. Cover and place in the oven. 

Turn the roast every hour. The key to cooking chuck roast is allowing time and heat to break down the connective tissue. 

Cook 3 to 3 ½ hours total. Let stand 30 minutes before cutting or shredding. Enjoy!
