Bourbon & Brown Sugar Chuck Roast

Sometimes you want a special dinner. One that tastes like it came from an expensive restaurant, but the budget wont allow. Here is an easy to put together well balanced meal that does take time but hardly any effort.

The aroma will melt even the coldest, shopping weary body. Instead of a fancy dessert, peaches & cottage cheese. Instead of a heavy gravy, how about just home mashed potatoes? Balance it out with fresh broccoli and you have all of the best the fancy establishments could offer.

2½ to 3 lb chuck roast cut into big pieces
2 slices of bacon cut into thirds
1 tsp. Each kosher salt + pepper
4 Tbs. brown sugar
½ cup bourbon
½ cup Triple Sec orange
6 cloves garlic sliced

2 Tbl. extra virgin olive oil
1 cup beef broth
1/3 cup flour
Pre heat oven to 275 degrees
Slice the garlic in a small bowl.
Sprinkle the chuck roast with salt and pepper and set aside.

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.

What a wonderful aroma will fill your house. It is an intoxicating blend that could have come from behind a set of double swinging doors leading to the kitchens of a fine dinning establishment.

This well balanced meal says: “This is how you pamper yourself. “This is why it is worth it to get dressed, go into town and pull out the plastic card.” Only You have fixed this in your own kitchen!

So excited to serve this to my well-traveled Master to relish at His own dinner table.
