Savory braised chuck roast is a tender, melt in your mouth pot roast that is cooked with carrots low and slow for hours in a luscious sauce. It's an easy main dish recipe that everyone will just love.
I received product samples to create this recipe, however all opinions are my own.
Teriyaki sauce is the perfect companion for a quick and easy pot roast recipe. It doesn't have a lot of funky ingredients in it, and it has a ton of flavor. After braising the beef and vegetables, it becomes rich and savory, and loses a good amount of the Teriyaki sweetness. This is the easiest way to make pot roast ever!

What Is Braising?
Braising is an easy way to cook tougher cuts of meat. It starts out with searing the meat to caramelize it on the outside without cooking it too much on the interior. Then you add enough liquid (wine, beer, broth and aromatics) to cover the meat about half way and simmer it on the stove or in the oven at low heat for several hours until it becomes tender.
The end result is a fall apart piece of meat that will melt in your mouth.
Here is how to make braised chuck roast in the oven
Add oil to the pan and heat it over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the meat and cook for 5 to 8 minutes until it begins to turn brown. Flip it over and cook for 5 to 8 minutes longer so that both sides are brown.
Once both sides of the meat are brown, combine the broth, garlic and ginger with the sauce, arrage the carrots in the pan around the meat. Pour the sauce mixture over the meat and carrots, cover and braise at 350.
Remove the pan from the oven, thicken the sauce if necessary and enjoy!
What to Serve Braised Chuck Roast with
Pot roast is the ultimate comfort food, we like to serve braised chuck roast with other comfort foods, like healthy mashed potatoes, egg noodles, cauliflower rice and a side of roasted brussels sprouts, steamed broccoli, or a simple spinach salad.
Storage and Leftover Ideas
Store leftover braised chuck roast in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
Freezing is not recommended since I have not tried to freeze braised chuck roast.
Re-heat leftover chuck roast in a covered pan on top of the stove in the sauce.
Leftovers taste great heated and served over egg noodles, over toast, or chopped up in a casserole with peas and carrots and topped with mashed potatoes.
