    Sandylee's Note:

    This is a tasty roast for 2 or even 1. It is just me at home so I cut my roast in half. Will feast on this roast with some heavenly mashed potatoes covered in gravy and a nice veggie to go with it. With the leftovers...well I will saute up some mushrooms to add to the gravy, cube the left over roast to add along with it....and then serve over noodles or rice. I will have another meal for another day without much preparation for it.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (1 1/2 lb) chuck roast, abt 1 1/2 lbs (I cut a 3lb roast in half, froze the other half for another time)
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 1 onion, cut in large dice
    • 1 teaspoon beef base
    • 1 cup hot water
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon herbes de provence
    • 1 teaspoon Gravy Master
    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • 1 tablespoon water


    1. 1
      In a small bowl mix together the salt, pepper, and garlic powder ( it makes for a better distribution of the seasonings).
    2. 2
      Sprinkle beef with the mixed seasoning on all sides.
    3. 3
      Brown the chuck roast in the oil on all sides (I use my Le Creuset 2-Quart Round French Oven).
    4. 4
      Add the onion to the pot and saute until light golden color.
    5. 5
      Dissolve the beef base in hot water.
    6. 6
      Pour the resulting broth around the roast in the pot.
    7. 7
      Bring the broth up to a bubble, immediately cover, and turn down the heat to a simmer.
    8. 8
      Cook at a simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the meat is fork tender.
    9. 9
      Remove meat from pan and keep warm by covering with foil.
    10. 10
      Mix the flour and water together to create a slurry.
    11. 11
      Add the gravy master to simmering broth.
    12. 12
      Slowing pour the slurry into the pan while stirring with a whisk to ensure no lumps form.
    13. 13
      Simmer for a couple of minutes to cook the flour.
    14. 14
      Taste and correct seasoning with additional salt, pepper, and garlic powder blend if needed.
    15. 15
      NOTE: The salt, pepper, garlic powder blend is actually Paula Deen's House Seasoning, see Paula Deen's House Seasoning Mix.
