Braised Beef Chuck Roast

Easy and delicious beef recipe. Good to use with less expensive or tougher meat.


  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • Advertisement

  • 1 6-oz can tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 2-1/2 to 3 lb bone-in chuck roast


In a medium bowl, combine everything except the roast; mix well.

Make a foil packet: Tear a large sheet of heavy-duty foil and put the roast in the center. Place in roast pan. (I used a couple sheets and crossed them) Bring up the top and bottom edges then pour the vinegar mixture over the top of the roast. Then enclose the roast with the mixture into a packet shape.

Heat your oven to 325 degrees F. Bake the roast for 4 hours. Let it rest for 10 minutes before you open the packet.

I used a fork to pull the meat out of the packet. It just fell apart into large pieces.

Pull the meat apart and top with a little left over sauce. We've served this with egg noodles and also with mashed potatoes. Serves 4 - 6

Servings: 4-6
