Pot Roast Vegetables
Our favorite part about making a moist roasted chuck is that the vegetables cook right in there with the roast beef. This makes life so easy when you can make a delicious one pot meal.
Our favorites to add to our roasted chuck are carrots, potatoes and onions. This combination of vegetables will create the most amazing taste to be used in the gravy.
Tips: We love using whole carrots so they don’t get mushy. Do not use carrot slices as they will cook for too long and get super mushy.
While we love all potatoes, yukon gold or russet potatoes are our favorite to cook along with our roast chuck beef recipe. They are hearty enough to cook along with the beef without getting mushy.
What is Beef Chuck
Chuck Roast (also labeled as Chuck Eye Roast, Beef Pot Roast, and Chuck Roll Roast) comes from the front of the cow, around the shoulders, neck, and upper arm. It is one of the more economical cuts due to the amount of connective tissue and fat found throughout the meat.
This also makes it the optimal choice for a any pot roast. Well-marbled and tough, the chuck roast becomes moist and meltingly tender when braised at a low temperature over several hours.
