100% Grass Fed Chuck Roast
Our Heartstone Farm 100% grass fed chuck roasts are a thick cut of meat that makes the perfect “pot roast.” It has a rich, delicious flavor that makes it a classic main dish for a big home-cooked meal.
For tender, pull-apart meat, it should be slow cooked to allow time for the meat to soften and become juicy. Boneless!

Chuck roast is a relatively inexpensive cut of meat that starts out tough but becomes meltingly tender when you cook it using low temperatures and long, slow cooking methods. But if you treat it like a steak and try to cook it quickly with high heat, it rebels and gets dry and stringy. Whether you cook beef chuck roast using your stovetop, oven, slow cooker, or pressure cooker, low and slow is always the way to go.
Here are 50 recipes from Taste of Home for using chuck roast in everything from Shredded Beef Burritos to Philly Cheese Sandwiches.

What kind of meat is chuck roast?
Chuck roast comes mainly from the shoulder section of the steer, as well as parts of the neck, ribs and the upper arm. It’s a large part of the animal and is typically an affordable cut of meat.
How do you tenderize chuck roast?
Braising is the best way to tenderize chuck roast because it breaks down the fat into tender, juicy pieces.
What else is chuck roast good for?
Chuck roast can be used in a variety of recipes, letting you feed the whole family without breaking the bank.
My ex-mother-in-law made the best Yankee Pot Roast for Sunday dinners (meaning Sunday afternoon at 2). At first glance, Pot Roast is a relatively simple dish to prepare. But she must have had a secret ingredient because I've never quite matched her's. I'm pretty sure the secret ingredient was many cupfuls of Yankee love she had for all of us.
Here's a tribute I wrote to my mother-in-law's Yankee Pot Roast.
