Chef Jodi usually prefers chuck roast over brisket for these recipes. Chuck roast has more fat and it literally melts in your mouth. Mmm!! Add veggies within the last hour of cooking for a delicious 1-pot meal!
4 pound brisket or chuck roast
1 cup Italian Dressing
1/2 cup red wine
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
½ cup water
In a medium size bowl whisk all ingredients together. Set aside.
1Tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon coarse sea sal½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground mustard
¾ teaspoon paprika
2 crumbled bay leaves
3 lb chuck roast or brisket
In a small bowl combine all ingredients. Rub seasoning all over meat. Place meat in a freezer baggie or glass Pyrex dish and pour marinade over meat. Seal baggie or cover glass dish and refrigerate overnight or for several hours
Roast meat at 300 degrees for 3 -4 hours with lid or tin foil tightly covering baking dish. I also grill the meat. Sear on high for 30 – 40 minutes on grill. Then place in aluminum container with remaining marinade and cover tightly with 3 layers of tin foil. Turn grill or smoker on low or 275 – 300 degrees and cook 3 - 4 hours until meat in tender. Check at 2 ½ hours, you may need to put water in pan or beef broth if all the marinade has reduced so you have some gravy to serve meat with.
Slice meat, it should fall apart when you are slicing it and serve.
Serves 10 -12
5-lb Brisket or Chuck Roast with Carrots, String Beans, and Potatoes:
Clean meat and place in large glass dish, add marinade and then smear rub mixture all over meat. Cover pan tightly with saran wrap, refrigerate overnight or for several hours. Turn meat over in morning or half way through marinating.
Roast meat covered tightly at 290 degrees for 3 – 4 hours or grill meat slowly for 45 minutes turning as needed. Place meat in aluminum pan, cover tightly, turn middle gas burner off and put other gas burners on low (indirect heat) and cook for 3 hours or so on grill. Be sure grill lid is down when cooking.
Can add 1 pound of string beans, small baby carrots and mushrooms to roast about 1 hour before roast is done. If adding small potatoes place in roasting pan 2 hours before roast is done.
