Easiest Roast Beef You Ever Made
Easiest Roast Beef You Ever Made

The food network taught me how to cook. Since I was a teenager, I'd watch pretty much every show they had on, learning how to dice and saute, how to emulsify and marinate, all from the comfort of my couch. I owe all those guys my love of cooking, and thanks to them, I've come up with some pretty awesome meals... if I do say so myself...

That brings me to this week's post. I got the original recipe from a certain food network lady, and then tweaked it a bit to fit my taste. It is the easiest, and most delicious roast I've ever made, for reals. Surprising, since it only has three ingredients. It just goes to show, simple is best, people! Simple, is best. Here we go.

Finger-licking, toe-tapping, best roast ever!  

3-4 lb chuck roast

3 medium onions, sliced

1/4 cup cider vinegar

salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 425. Grab a large metal baking pan (the first time I made this, the heat made my Pyrex (glass) baking dish break when I added more water. It didn't live to see another roast). Break off two long pieces of aluminum foil, large enough to wrap the roast and onions in. It helps to measure a little. Place the foil in the dish, shiny side up. One piece going vertical, the other horizontal. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over that hunk of meat and place it in the foil. Arrange the sliced onions on top, like in the picture. Pour in the vinegar and wrap it all up into a yummy beef package. Pour water along the sides of the pan, up to an inch (this keeps the roast from burning up on ya). Roast for 3-4 hours, checking the water level periodically. Add more water if necessary. 

Let cool for a few minutes before you open it up. Remove the roast and pour the juices into a sauce pan, onions and all. Add 2 tbsp of flour and whisk over medium heat until thickened. You got yourself some gravy, my friend!

My mouth is watering just thinking about it. You can serve this with mashed potatoes or veggies. You can shred it up to make beef tacos (yum!) or you can cut up the leftovers to make some incredible beef stew.
