Savor the rich and hearty flavors of our Italian Pot Roast Straccato, perfect for a cozy family dinner! 🍖



2 lbs beef chuck roast

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

2 stalks celery, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups beef broth

1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes

1 teaspoon dried rosemary

1 teaspoon dried thyme

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the beef with salt and pepper and sear in the pot until browned on all sides.

Remove the beef and add the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.

Return the beef to the pot and add the beef broth, crushed tomatoes, rosemary, and thyme.

Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 3-4 hours, or until the beef is tender and falls apart easily.

Shred the beef in the pot and mix with the sauce.

Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
