    Default Chuck roast ideas

    I have a smallish (1.5 pounds? a little more?) chuck roast with bones,
    and I don't feel like cutting the meat off the bone. Other than just
    making a pot roast with it, anyone feel like throwing ideas at me?

    (Yes, I can google. I prefer talking to y'all. Deal.)

    Could do like Melba recently did and marinate then grill it. :-)
    Chuck is really not that tough if cooked rare to medium rare, but only
    if you like it that way.

    I personally prefer my beef bloody rare in the center...

    I haven't done this, but if it's not too thick, why not try a Korean
    Kalbi recipe. Marinate it and grill it. The short ribs used in Kalbi are
    similar in texture to the chuck.

    Here's one I've used.

    Kalgi- Korean Barbecue Short Ribs

    Recipe By : Jenny Kwak and Liz Fried

    Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : beef Meat

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 pound beef short ribs -- flat cut
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 teaspoons sesame oil
    2 teaspoons crushed garlic
    1 tablespoon rice wine (sake)
    1 Pinch black pepper
    1/2 piece fresh kiwi -- juiced in a blender

    Distribute the sugar evenly on the beef short ribs by sprinkling it on
    each piece. Allow beef to sit for 10 minutes.

    In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, sake, and black
    pepper. Put aside.

    Massage the beef with the kiwi juice using your hands. The kiwi works as
    a tenderizer. Add the sauce and mix. Allow the beef to marinate for 2
    hours before barbecuing.

    Grill for 6-8 minutes turning a few times.

    Use Damsel's Italian beef recipe for your spice mix and cook it as a
    pot roast in a slow cooker or however you want. I find her recipe to
    be a bit mild so for the small piece of meat you have it should be
    good. You can serve it over pasta with the juice if you add onions
    and peppers towards the end. Or even make a gravy from the juice. Or
    serve the meat <falling apart> on bread topped with cheese and browned
    under the broiler. I've done all of the above and they're all great
    cheap eats.

    I'm in the process of doing that right now.

    I've laid a bed of salt in a disposable roasting
    pan. I've made up a mix of cornstarch, salt, dry mustard,
    and will add water to make a paste. The roast will be
    rubbed with Montreal steak seasoning, then chilled and
    coated with the paste, and chilled again. The roasting
    pan will be preheated in my kamado, then the roast,
    coated with the paste, will be placed on it to cook.
    No turning (this is a new twist for me), maybe 1/2
    hour. Original recipe called for it to be thrown
    into the campfire coals. The paste will turn black.

    When ready, crack the paste shell and discard. Serve
    meat. The times I've done this in the field are many,
    turning on the coals so each side gets 15 minutes.

    Turns out moist and flavorful. Original recipe does not
    call for the rub.

    We'll see how it turns out.

    A stand by and oh so easy is but I usually have 4 pound ones:>): Get
    chuck roast, place in foil lined pan, pour bit of water/wine, pour
    half a packet of dry onion soup mix on chuck roast. Seal with foil
    tightly. Bake at 350.

    You'll have to modify it for the less than 2 pounds, but it comes out
    so tasty and could not be easier.

    Good luck.

    aloha,

    1. Mexican stew with peppers and onions .. eat with tortillas, rice and
    black beans.
    2. If there is a definble eye .. cut it out and grill it.

    It'll make six very tasty quarts of beef barley 'shroom soup.

    DON'T DO THIS!

    It doesn't translate from the original. Meat was OK,
    but required heroic efforts to make it tasty. There
    are problems with heat transmission.

    Good try, but it didn't work.

    Rub in all sides and let sit for a while --

    S and P, cumin, small touch of cayenne, garlic and onion powder, +
    +paprika.

    Then brown till very dark.

    Put in crock pot with a can of good chopped tomatoes, sauteed onion
    and garlic.
    Plus a bit of fresh rosemary and bay leaf.
    Little bit of sherry.

    More S and P to taste.

    Cook 6 hours minimum and toward end thicken the broth.

    I like a few raisins thrown in toward the end. (with some capers
    sometimes).

    Always better the second day.

    IMHO -- you always need tomatoes with chuck roast.

    Hi Serene (again) -

    If there is a good way to deal with Chuck, it's on a grill. Bone? No
    bone? Doesn't matter. Chuck may be a little fat, but he sure tastes good
    if not over cooked.

    Your pal,

    Bob

    Here is one way to serve chuck. Makes a killer stir fry:

    Pictures may be worth a thousand words. But for some reason, I find a
    single word from some, says a thousand things.
