Indulge in the rich flavors of tender, slow-cooked beef that melts in your mouth. This recipe promises a hearty meal perfect for any occasion.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs beef chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup red wine (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Season the beef chuck roast generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the beef on all sides until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer the beef to the slow cooker.
  3. In the same skillet, add onions, garlic, carrots, and celery. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Deglaze the skillet with red wine, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Pour the onion mixture over the beef in the slow cooker.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together beef broth, tomato paste, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves. Pour this mixture over the beef and vegetables in the slow cooker.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours, until the beef is fork-tender.
  8. Once done, remove the beef from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks. Return the shredded beef to the slow cooker and stir to combine with the vegetables and sauce.
  9. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.

Enjoy the succulent flavors of this slow-cooked beef dish served alongside mashed potatoes, rice, or crusty bread.
