Step 1:

Season the chuck roast with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Step 2:

Put 1 cup of flour onto a plate and coat the chuck roast with it. This will give a fantastic crust to the meat.

Step 3:

In a large dutch oven, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (add more if needed) and 1 tablespoon of bacon grease. Place the floured chuck roast and sear it on all sides. Once done, set it aside on a plate.

Step 4:

Lower the heat to medium, in the same dutch oven, add 1 onion, 1 carrot, and 1 celery stick – all cut into big pieces. Cook until the onion becomes translucent. Add the mashed garlic cloves, 2 sprigs of rosemary, and 2 sprigs of thyme. Mix for 1 minute to keep the garlic from burning. Dust with 3 tablespoons of flour and mix. Cook until the flour is cooked. Next, add the tomato paste, beef broth, chicken stock, and red wine vinegar. Stir everything together then add the crushed tomatoes and bay leaves.

Step 5:

Put back the roast into the sauce and turn off the heat. Place it in the oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit on the middle rack for about 1.5 hours.

Step 6:

Slice the remaining carrots, celery, and onion. Take the dutch oven from the oven and remove the grease that has accumulated on top. Next, get the roast out and use a skimmer to remove the vegetables. Add the kitchen bouquet and stir.

Step 7:

Place the roast back in the dutch oven and add the sliced vegetables. Cover it with a lid and place it back into the oven and cook for 1 hour until the vegetables are tender.
