Chuck Roast

On a cold, blustery day on the ranch, nothing is better than a chuck roast cooking away in the oven. Served best with mashed potatoes and broccoli I think…but last night it was brown rice and sauteed brussels sprouts.

What is a chuck roast:
The cut location is from the center portion of the Chuck Roll so it can be called Chuck Center Roast.

A little about our beef:
The families of Painted Hills Natural Beef have been ranching in Central Oregon, specifically Wheeler County, in the shadow of the state’s famed Painted Hills, for generations. While times have changed in the last two and a half decades, our methods of ranching the way nature intended have not. Pasture raising our cattle without the use of added hormones and never given antibiotics. It means taking the time, care, and effort to do things right. It means raising a beef product for you that’s as striking as the natural wonders it’s named after.

Thank you for trusting us to feed you, your friends, and your family. We’d love to see the finished product! We hope you’ll tag us in a post on social media.

4 People


  • 1xOnion
  • 2xCloves Garlic
  • 1C.Wine
  • 1Pinch(s)Dried basil and dried oregano
  • 2Tsp.Dry Canyon Salt Company Wine Salt
  • 2Tsp.Ground pepper
  • 2C.chicken stock (I would have used beef, but I didn’t have any)


  1. I chopped 1 whole onion and 2 cloves of garlic and sauteed them in a dutch oven on the stove at med high until brown. While that was cooking, I trimmed off the extra fat and gristle from the roast. The roast was 4# before trimming I removed the onion and garlic from the dutch oven and place the roast in to brown. I added about 1 cup of wine (I don’t measure well, especially wine) I added a healthy pinch of dried basil and another of dried oregano (because wine requires basil and oregano) I added 2 teaspoons of Dry Canyon Salt Company Wine Salt that had been in the cupboard calling my name since I purchased it last November at a holiday bazaar, and then threw in about 2 t of coarse ground pepper. Added back in the onions and garlic. Put in 2 cups of chicken stock
  2. Put it all in the oven, uncovered at 350. After one hour, I reduced the temperature to 250 and put the cover on and cooked 3 1/2 more hours.
  3. About 30 minutes before serving, I pulled the roast apart into pieces and made sure it all got down in the liquid.
