  • 2.5-3 pounds beef chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 2 medium onions - white or yellow
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire
  • 1-2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 bay leaves


  • Season chuck roast with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large pan or dutch oven to a high heat.
  • Add oil and then the chuck roast. Cook for 2-3 minutes without moving the roast until browned.
  • Flip the chuck roast over and brown the other side for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the roast from the pan and rub with mustard.
  • Place the roast in the slow cooker on top of half of the sliced onions and garlic. Cover the roast with the remaining onions and garlic.
  • Without washing the mustard off of the roast, pour in the beef stock, red wine, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8-10 hours until the meat easily separates, and is fork tender. Taste au jus to check if additional salt and pepper is desired.
  • Toast lightly buttered buns, baguettes, or French bread topped with cheese of choice in the oven until the bread is warm and the cheese is melty.
  • Pile buns high with shredded beef and onions. Serve with au jus along side for dipping.
