Make sure to choose a cut with lots of evident marbling as the fat veins will make your meat tender and juicy.

Prepare your dry rub for the meat as well.

For the dry rub

  • salt
  • pepper
  • ground oregano
  • cumin
  • chili powder
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder.

Now that all ingredients are ready, lets begin.

This is where the flavor comes in.

Season the chuck roasts.

Mix the spices together and generously sprinkle them over the slabs of meat. You can pat them down firmly to it will stick to the meat. Set it aside.

While waiting, saut矇 the vegetables.

In a pan, heat some olive oil. Throw in your vegetables and start tossing.

You dont need to cook it completely as it will go through a longer cooking process later. Season with salt and pepper.

Next, add in your garlic. When it starts to become fragrant, get it off the fire and throw the saut矇ed veggies into the crock pot.

Then, sear the meat.

In the same pan, heat up some oil. When it becomes out and smoky, place your chuck roast slabs one at a time.

Sear the meat on both sides for 3 minutes. When its done, place it over the veggies in the pot.

Were not going to put those meat scraps to waste.

Melt butter in the same pan.

When its melted, quickly add your all-purpose flour. Make sure not to brown your butter when you melt it.

Stir constantly until the two are incorporated fully.

Pour in your red wine. This will also help you deglaze your pan.

Add in your chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, and brown sugar. Mix well until all of them are incorporated.

Time for the finishing touches.

Pour your sauce into the crock pot. Shake it a bit to help the thick sauce settle deeper into the pot.

Add in your bay leaf and the rest of the fresh herbs.

Set the crock pot for 8 hours and wait for it to be finished.

Once done, let it rest for about 10-15 minutes. Take this time to skim off the excess fat. Serve and enjoy!
