2½ to 3 lb chuck roast cut into big pieces
1 tsp. Each kosher salt + pepper
4 Tbs. brown sugar
½ cup bourbon
6 cloves garlic sliced
2 Tbl. extra virgin olive oil
1 cup beef broth
1/3 cup flourDirections:
In a 9 by 13 baking dish, combine the brown sugar, bourbon, garlic, Triple Sec, and broth and whisk together blending it all together well. Sit the meat in this and cover for at least 15 minutes. Then uncover and flip the meat to coat the other side. Recover for 15 more minutes.
In a dutch oven over medium high heat cook the bacon until it releases its grease. Remove to paper towels. Using tongs, remove the meat from the marinade, shake off excess, and put on a large plate holding the flour. Flip to coat well and cut into portion sized pieces.
Put meat into the hot bacon grease and sear on all sides. Reduce heat and slowly add in the marinade plus another ½ cup of broth.
Throw in the cooked bacon.
Cover tightly with a lid and put in the preheated oven for 2.5 to 3 hours. During the last ½ hour check to see if it needs more broth.
Remove with a slotted spoon. If you like, you can make a gravy from the cooking juices in the pot, but it is not necessary.
Dish out a cup into a sauce pan. Stir in a slurry made of 1 tbs corn starch and 2 tbs water. Stir until thick.
Serve with broccoli and a side of home mashed potatoes.
