Braising is a technique that turns even the toughest cuts of meat into fork-tender meals. After a few hours of braising in our tomato paste and peeled tomatoes, it is ready to serve over creamy polenta or shredded as a ragu on pappardelle pasta.

ingredients

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 pounds boneless chuck roast, cut into large chunks
Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup pancetta, diced, about 8 ounces
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 yellow onions, chopped
3 carrots, peeled and diced
2 cups fresh whole mushrooms, cleaned and cut in half
1 1/2 cups red wine
1 bunch fresh thyme, remove leaves from stem
2 bay leaves
1 (35 ounce) can Tuttorosso® Peeled Plum Italian Style Tomatoes with natural basil flavor, broken into pieces by hand
3 tablespoons Tuttorosso® Tomato Paste
1 cup chicken stock, or beef stock
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350o F.
  • Heat oil in a large Dutch oven. Pat dry the pieces of chuck roast and season with salt and pepper. Brown meat on all sides in the oil; then transfer to a plate.
  • Add the pancetta to Dutch oven and lightly brown. Add the garlic, onions, carrots and mushrooms; stir to combine. Cook until onions are translucent. Place the meat back into the Dutch oven.
  • Add the wine and cook for several minutes reduce the liquid by half, stirring occasionally. Add the thyme, bay leaves, tomatoes, tomato paste and stock. Bring to a boil and then cover.
  • Place Dutch oven in the oven and cook about 2½ to 3 hours or until meat is fork tender. Remove from oven and garnish with parsley.
Cook's Note: Store in the refrigerator for a day or two, then reheat in your oven when ready to serve. We love to serve this over creamy polenta or shredded for a delicious ragu on pappardelle pasta!
