Cast Iron Pot Roast with Yam Puree

This Chuck Roast recipe features a savory slow-cooked dish, starting with a seasoned and seared 2lb Primal Pastures Chuck Roast. The cast iron pot is then infused with flavors from a large, diced onion, crushed garlic, tomato paste, and a cup of red wine.

After deglazing and reducing, the chuck roast is reintroduced and covered with Primal Pasture Beef Bone Broth, simmering in the oven for 6-8 hours.

Accompanying this hearty main course is a delightful Yam Puree, where peeled and quartered yams are cooked until tender, blended with butter and reserved liquid.

To elevate the dish, a Red Wine Reduction is prepared by combining red wine, braising liquid, and butter, reduced to a rich and syrupy consistency, bringing a complementary burst of flavor to this delicious and comforting meal.
