Prep Time: 15 mins Total Time: 2 hrs 35 mins Yields: 6

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 lb. chuck roast, cut into 2" cubes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1/4 c. red wine
  • 1 (28 oz.) can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Parmesan, for serving
  • Freshly chopped parsley, for serving

 

 

Directions:

  1. In a large stock pot over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Season chuck roast with salt and pepper and sear, in batches if needed, until browned on all sides, 10 minutes. Remove into a large bowl.
  2. Heat remaining oil, still over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft, 6 minutes. Add garlic, fennel seeds, and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.
  3. Add tomato paste and cook until it is darkened in color, 1 to 2 minutes more. Deglaze pot with wine, scraping any brown bits up at the bottom of your pot with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add whole peeled tomatoes, water, thyme, bay leaf, and seared pot roast and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat easily shreds, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Use a wooden spoon to break up tomatoes and meat, then serve over your favorite pasta or polenta. Top with parmesan and parsley before serving.
