Try our Beef Chuck Roast recipe for hearty and delicious Sunday dinner Chuck Roast Recipes. It takes little effort to prepare, takes care of itself as it braises with carrots and potatoes in a single pot for hours in the oven until it’s fork-tender, and is delicious both hot and cold. Sunday Roast is a gorgeous pot roast that can be prepared in minutes in the morning and served in the evening.


The aroma of this beef chuck dish cooking all day long is like nothing else, and neither is sharing it with your loved ones at the end of the day.

Let me say that this recipe for Sunday pot roast is the greatest I’ve ever prepared. This dish is delicious, juicy, and very soft; you can almost tear it apart—a mouthwatering experience with every mouthful.

You may serve this to a large group of people or just eat it with your loved ones. It’s perfect for hectic weeknights, lazy Sundays, or any special event.

I promise you will like this dish as much as I do. There’s a good reason why this is one of our best sellers. The slow cooker short ribs I make are another favorite meal on chillier nights. Simply exquisite; it seems to dissolve in your tongue.

Prep it in the morning, cook it during the day, and have it ready by half-time! I love this dish for game day.


Braise it low and slow, and the affordable chuck roast will become so tender that it will almost melt on your lips.

It is because of this that Angus chuck roast is the greatest cut of meat for pot roast. They are inexpensive and big enough to serve a large family with enough of food left over.


What is a chuck roast?

It’s a cut from the beef shoulder, neck, and upper arm area of the cow. Other names for chuck roast include chuck eye, chuck roll, and even just pot roast.

What is the difference between a chuck roast and a shoulder roast?

They both come from the same area, but the beef shoulder cut is leaner than chuck. It’s better for carving into slices. Only chuck beef will give you the “pulled” texture of this dish.

What is the best cut of beef for slow cooking?

Chuck Roast– so, so tender, shreds apart, and melts in your mouth.
Bottom round or top round beef – leaner cut and good to use if you want to slice your beef.
Beef Brisket – a fattier choice that gets very tender, but can still be sliced for serving. Try our Easy Brisket Recipe (slow cooker or Instant Pot).


Cooking times in different ovens will vary. As a result, I advise checking the internal temperature of your roast at regular intervals while cooking. Perhaps your roast will be ready before mine is! After three hours, check the temperature and the tenderness. It could be fully cooked and ready to shred before the timer goes off.

When flavoring a pot roast, less is more. Pepper and salt are all that’s needed. Be sure to dry the steak well and liberally season all sides.

You can add rosemary or thyme, but I’m a big believer that keeping it simple is best.

  • Leave the beef to reach room temperature before cooking. I always recommend you allow your beef to come to room temperature before cooking it so it can cook evenly and beautifully. It will take about 2 hours to come to room temperature.
  • Even if you think it’s too much, generously season the beef! Trust us, for that beautifully browned exterior, you want plenty of salt and pepper.
  • Scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pot. When you deglaze the pot with red wine, make sure to scrape up those brown bits at the bottom. That’s flavor!
  • Use whole carrots so they don’t get mushy. If you use carrot slices, they will cook too long and get mushy. No one likes mushy carrots!
  • Use Yukon Gold or russet potatoes for this recipe. They’re hearty enough to cook along with the beef without getting mushy.

This dish is perfect over mashed potatoes. The delicious beef gravy seeping into creamy mashed potatoes is a beautiful thing. My family won’t have it served any other way!


Your pot roast should reach an internal temperature of at least 195°. I recommend cooking the beef until it is fall-apart tender.

How long to cook chuck roast in the oven at 350˚F: Cook a 4 lb. cut of beef low and slow for over 4 hours. This gives it plenty of time to soak in all the wonderful flavors and become completely moist and fork-tender.

Cook it for up to 6 hours for an even more tender dinner. This is how to slow-cook a roast in the oven so it falls apart!

You can add a whole variety of different veggies to this recipe! I like to add:

  • Potatoes
  • Onions (white or yellow work best)
  • Carrots
  • Celery

Not only do the vegetables taste amazing, but it’s a great way to make your side dishes at the same time as the main course. One-pot meals are so convenient.
