Servings 6


  • 3 pound chuck roast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
  • 1 medium yellow or sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (28-ounce) bottle BBQ sauce, I used Sweet Baby Ray's


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper all over chuck roast.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed Dutch Oven. I like to use my Le Creuset.
    Add chuck roast and cook about 2 minutes a side to sear.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook 1 minute.
  • Pour bbq sauce on top of chuck roast, lifting it to let some go underneath.
  • Cover and place in oven and cook for 2 hours. Remove from oven, turn roast overn and return to oven for 1 hour. I like to cook it uncovered for the last 30 minutes to thicken the sauce.
