Grilled Chuck Roast: A Family Favorite Dinner

Pot roast has always been a go-to meal for busy days, but grilling chuck roast introduces a smoky twist that we’ve grown to love. When thinly sliced, it pairs perfectly with creamy mashed potatoes, bacon-infused green beans, and warm dinner rolls. Or, for a quick and satisfying option, chop it up for a flavorful roast beef sandwich.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Boneless Chuck Roast: This affordable cut of meat, typically from the upper neck or shoulder, will make a mouthwatering grill feast.
  • Olive Oil
  • Brown Sugar
  • Granulated Garlic
  • Onion Powder
  • Ground Rosemary
  • Dried Thyme
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Dry Mustard

  5. Set the roast aside while you prepare the grill.

  3. Cook the roast for around 45 minutes, checking the internal temperature with a digital meat thermometer.

  1. Continue to cook the roast until it has reached your desired level of doneness. We suggest medium, pulling it from the grill at around 155°.

  1. Allow the roast to rest on a cutting board for about 15 minutes before slicing. This method produces a texture similar to steak, offering a deliciously chewy experience, unlike traditional pot roast.

If you prefer a fall-apart tender roast, similar to the classic pot roast, place it in a pan and add 2 cups of beef broth or red wine as a braising liquid. Cover the pan with foil and continue cooking on the grill or in the oven for approximately another hour, until the roast reaches an internal temperature of 190°.

How to Store and Reheat Roast Beef:

Store any leftover roast beef in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Alternatively, if you have a vacuum sealer, you can refrigerate vacuum-sealed slices for up to 7 days or freeze them for up to 6 months.

To reheat sliced roast beef, simply place it in a pan with beef broth over medium heat for approximately 4 minutes. For a different twist, chop the beef and mix it with your favorite BBQ sauce. Cook it over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes, and enjoy the flavors!

Leftover Chuck Roast Recipes:

  • Roast Beef Stroganoff: Indulge in a hearty meal featuring grilled roast beef and a creamy mushroom sauce served over egg noodles.
  • Cheesy Beef Rigatoni: Take advantage of your leftover pot roast by combining it with a cheesy sauce and cooked pasta for a satisfying comfort food meal.
