Grass Fed Beef Chuck Roast

This recipe is a hearty filling meal for those cold winter days and is quick and easy to prepare



Ingredients:

2 Onions
1 tbsp. Pepper ( Fresher ground pepper is better)
1 tbsp. Onion Powder
1tspn. Sea Salt

Preparation Option #1 (shown in pictures below): Pot with Lid

Pre-Heat oven to 225° F. The key is to match the Chuck Roast to the size of the pan (this is the secret to a juicy roast). Sprinkle pepper, onion powder, and sea salt over the roast. Then slice the onion and distribute evenly over the entire roast. Cover and place in the center of the oven for 5 to 8 hours. The roast will be ready in 5 hours however the longer the cook time the more tender the roast will be.
