Ingredients
  • 1 (3 to 4-pound) boneless chuck roast
  • 1 teaspoon House Seasoning, recipe follows
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion wedges
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules
  • 3/4 cup water
  • House Seasoning:
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the House Seasoning, salt and pepper to a small bowl. Rub seasoning into the roast on both sides. Heat oil in a large skillet and brown the roast, searing it on both sides. Place the meat in a roaster pan. Add onions and garlic to skillet for 1 to 2 minutes to absorb leftover roast juice. Place into roaster pan with meat and bay leaves.

Combine the mushroom soup, wine, Worcestershire sauce and beef bouillon into a bowl. Pour over the roast. Add water.

Cover pan with foil and bake for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until tender.

Remove and discard the bay leaves.

*Cook's Note: If the gravy is not thick enough, remove the meat from the pan and pour the gravy into a saucepan. Bring to a boil and thicken it by adding 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water, stirring constantly.

House Seasoning:

Mix ingredients and store in an air tight container for up to 6 months.

Easy, rich, and warm comfort food roast recipe.  Just a word of advice, it is not too salty if you read and follow the recipe.  It says to use 1 tsp. of the house seasoning, not the whole 1 cup.  Disregard the reviews by inexperienced cooks who choose not to simply read recipes.  Thank you Paul D. for sharing another absolutely fabulous recipe that the whole family loves.   item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't BELIEVE the individuals whom used the WHOLE cup and half of Dean's Seasoned Salt, is mind boggling.  If you READ the Recipe and amount of Seasonings to use, it CLEARLY STATES ..... 1 TEASPOON!  How is this recipe poorly written?   item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the most disgusting roast, it was a salt lick . . I even cut in half and NO ONE could eat it . . bad, bad, bad!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, I used less than 1/4 of the salt mixture, and the roast was still too salty to eat. It was awful. The roast cooked beautifully. After tasting it, we could not eat it. It was so salty. I actually pulled apart the meat and rinsed it thoroughly for several minutes. I saved it for tomorrow. I will try this recipe again without using the salt mixture. item not reviewed by moderator and published

So sad to come to home a house that smells of burnt pot roast. Yes I followed the directions so I am wondering where I went wrong. If you like the taste of beef jerky and the crunchy meat, this is the recipe for you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This roast worked well for Christmas dinner. The only thing I added was fresh mushrooms. Free I browned the roast, I scraped the bottom of the pan with onion & garlic, ten added mushrooms towards the end. item not reviewed by moderator and published
