  • 1 (3 to 4 lb) boneless chuck roast
  • 1 teaspoon Paula Deen's House Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup onion, thinly sliced wedges
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules
  • 3/4 cup water


Preheat oven to 350°.


Add the House Seasoning, salt and pepper to a small bowl. Rub seasoning into the roast on both sides. Heat oil in a large skillet and brown the roast, searing it on both sides. Place the meat in a roaster pan. Add onions and garlic to skillet for 1 to 2 minutes to absorb leftover roast juice. Place into roaster pan with meat and bay leaves.


Combine the mushroom soup, wine, Worcestershire sauce and beef bouillon into a bowl. Pour over the roast. Add water.


Cover pan with foil and bake for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until tender.


Remove and discard the bay leaves.


*Cook's Note: If the gravy is not thick enough, remove the meat from the pan and pour the gravy into a saucepan. Bring to a boil and thicken it by adding 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water, stirring constantly.

my roast is burn

my roast is burnt. I smelled it and add a little water, still had 1 hr 20 min to go. Another hour and it was very burnt at the bottom and all the gravy. I did put 1/2 cup of water instead of 3/4 but it shouldn't have made that big difference. It is still full of flavor. It's for tomorrow's dinner so I'll make a little gravy myself. Next time I'll one cup of water.
