Tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef and veggies in a delicious gravy, this easy one-pot recipe is sure to be a family favorite!  I’ve seen many recipes for pot roast with wine, but I wanted to use the Guinness Stout I had leftover from a gathering, as I had used it in a beef stew and that had such a wonderful flavor. You can make this using a pressure cooker as well, which is great when you want a delicious dinner, but don’t want to wait eight hours.

For this recipe, I used the Rockcrok® Digital Slow Cooker Stand, which pairs with the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven:

Rockcrok® Digital Slow Cooker Stand

Slow Cook & Keep Warm

Take your Rockcrok® Dutch Oven or Everyday Pan and turn it into a slow cooker with the Rockcrok® Digital Slow Cooker Stand. The slow cooker lets you cook food on your own time, or easily transfer it from the oven or stove top directly into the stand to keep it warm. Control the temperature and timing of your food with the stand’s digital display and keep your cabinets tidy with compact cord storage for when you aren’t using the stand. Two inset handles make lifting easy, and the stand even wipes clean for simple cleanup.

Rockcrok® Dutch Oven

COOK ANY MEAL FOR A CROWD

The Rockcrok® Dutch Oven is the perfect size for cooking for a crowd, and unlike other types of ceramic cookware, you can use Rockcroks® right away without needing to preseason. The large Rockcrok® Dutch Oven perfect for anything—appetizers, bread, casseroles, braised meats, soups, and more! You’ll never run out of possibilities with this durable, versatile piece.

Rockcrok® Collection

Calling our Rockcrok® Collection versatile is an understatement. It’s made from durable, high-quality clay that’s heat-safe to 752°F (400°C), so you can sear, braise, simmer, slow cook, fry, boil, bake, broil, microwave, and grill in one pan. Rockcrok® pieces transfer effortlessly from freezer to stove top to oven and back again, all while creating savory roasts, crisp crusts, moist cakes, and one-pot wonders. Since they’re dishwasher-safe, you’ll find reasons to use these lightweight alternatives to cast-iron cookware every day.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds chuck roast
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary freshly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme freshly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 shallots finely chopped
  • 1 onion wedged
  • 3 cups carrots cut into thick chunks
  • 4 whole garlic cloves
  • 5 garlic cloves diced
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 16 ounces Guinness Stout
  • 2 sprigs Rosemary
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened (for gravy)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (for gravy)

Instructions

Peel garlic and dice 5 of the cloves. Wedge onion, finely chop shallots, peel and cut carrots; set aside.

Season Roast with salt and pepper on both sides. Add oil to the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven over high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add roast and sear for 3 minutes per side, or until nicely browned. Remove roast from Dutch oven and set aside.

Turn heat down to medium, and add in shallots, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and Italian seasoning. Sauté for 2 minutes. 

Add the tomato paste, stirring to incorporate.  Pour in the broth and Guinness, mixing to combine. 

Add all the other ingredients and roast to the Dutch Oven, EXCEPT the softened butter and flour.  Give a stir to combine. Cover Rockcrok with lid.

Set slow cooker to LOW for 8 hours, or HIGH for 4 hours.

Once cooking is complete, carefully remove chuck roast from the pot, and shred meat. Combine the butter and flour to make a paste, and stir into the stew if the gravy is not thick enough.  You may remove the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven from the Rockcrok®Digital Slow Cooker Stand to finish gravy on the stove top, if you prefer.

Remove the bay leaf and rosemary sprigs; serve over mashed potatoes.

Notes: 

To cook in the Deluxe Multi Cooker (Pressure Cooker), follow the same directions above, except you’ll be cooking using the inner pot of the Deluxe Multi Cooker. Set to BEEF/PORK for 60 minutes.

When the timer is up, press CANCEL. Press STEAM-RELEASE. Carefully remove chuck roast from the inner pot, and shred meat.  Continue with directions above.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 lbs. stewing beef, cut into 1.5-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • 3-6 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp cold butter, divided
  • 2 cups sweet onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot wine
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 tsp Better Than Bouillon
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 5 medium carrots, diced into ¼-inch pieces
  • 1 lb. baby Yukon Gold potatoes, halved
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ¼ cup cold water + 3 tbsp cornstarch to make slurry optional
  • 2-3 drops Kitchen Bouquet Browning + Seasoning Sauce optional

Instructions

Cut beef into 1.5-inch cubes, then toss with black pepper, garlic salt, celery salt and flour to fully coat. Chop onions and garlic, dice potatoes and cut potatoes in half.

Heat 3 tbsp oil in Rockcrok over medium-high heat; sear the meat @ 45 seconds per side (do this in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan), then remove and set aside.

Reduce heat to medium, and add one tablespoon of the butter to Rockcrok. Add onions to pan, and cook for 5 minutes until translucent. Add garlic, cooking one minute until fragrant.  Add a little wine or water to deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits of flavor. 

Add the beef back to the pan, along with all of the other ingredients EXCEPT the peas and the slurry.  Give a stir to combine. Cover Rockcrok with lid. Set slow cooker to LOW for 8 hours, or HIGH for 4 hours.

Add in the peas during the last 15 minutes of cooking. 

Once cooking is complete, combine the cold water and cornstarch to make the slurry, and stir into the stew if it is not thick enough.  Remove the bay leaves and rosemary; add in the 2 tablespoons of cold butter, stirring to incorporate.
