2.3kg beef chuck roast
trimmed and tied
2large green bell peppers
large dice
1large spanish onions
large dice
1large celery stalks
thickly sliced
1618.4ml/g tomatoes, canned, whole, peeled
2- 28 oz. cans (1 can drained, 1 juices reserved)
414ml beef stock
or beef stock
118ml red wine
6whole garlic cloves
skins removed
5ml kosher salt
2.5ml black pepper
freshly ground
30ml sugar
white, granulated
30ml cumin
5ml paprika
5ml oregano
dried, crushed
3whole bay leaves
45ml all-purpose flour
for coating roast
30ml olive oil
plus a touch more


Trim excess fat from roast; wash and pat dry; salt and pepper to taste. Lightly dredge in the flour, shaking off excess. Tie securely with butcher's twine (kitchen twine).

Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven; brown the meat over medium-high heat on all sides, about 15 minutes. Remove meat and set aside. Reduce heat to medium and add a little more oil, if necessary. Add in the peppers, onion, celery and garlic cloves; sauté 4 to 5 minutes; set aside (will be added back later to the braising meat).

Return browned meat to the pot.; add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, very slowly, until meat is somewhat tender, about 2½ to 3 hours. Add back the reserved peppers, onion, celery and garlic cloves. Continue to cook for another hour, adding more liquid if necessary, until meat is very tender and vegetables are cooked through. NOTE: Turn and baste the meat several times during cooking.

Remove meat from pot and let rest and cool down for about 10 minutes before slicing or shredding. Remove bay leaves from pot and ladle vegetables, garlic and sauce over the meat on a warmed serving platter.

Serve with garlic mashed potatoes or hot cooked rice, if desired.

Delicious! Like "Ropa Vieja." The shredded meat is also a great taco or burrito filling. Yum!

No, not 4 servings. Should be at least 8 to 10 servings (if not more) for that size roast.
