  • 2 & 1/2 beef chuck roast
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 & 1/2 lb potatoes
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 celery stick

For the gravy:

  • 1/4 cup rendered fat or cooking oil
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 14.5 fl oz low-sodium beef broth or stock
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

To start, combine 3 tbsp all-purpose flour, 1 & 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper. Mix well, then coat the chuck roast with this seasoned dredge. Next, heat a half cup of oil in a large pan, then place the chuck roast. Brown and sear on each side on medium to high heat for about 3 to 4 minutes. Set it aside. Next, for the gravy, in the same pan over medium heat (remove a lot of the excess oil first), saute onions, add the excess dredge, and create a roux. (If you’re going to use plain flour, just season it.) After this, slowly add 1 can of beef broth. Continue mixing, let it thicken, then it’s done.
