Thyme and Garlic Chuck Roast With Veggies

Tami Conklin


This is my Thyme and Garlic Chuck Roast WIth Veggies. I created it through years of making roasts. It has become a family favorite!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Flavorful and cooked to perfection, this chuck roast is comfort food to the max. It's a fantastic way to prepare beef roast and vegetables. The garlic and thyme combination is perfect for this chuck roast. Adding the veggies in the last hour keeps them from overcooking but they cook long enough to soak up all the flavors. This is a great stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal that makes your kitchen smell absolutely a-ma-zing! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Thyme and Garlic Chuck Roast With Veggies


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Put 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet. Brown both sides of the chuck roast.
  2. Then put into a roaster pan. Next, peel and slice the garlic. Put into the same skillet with drippings and saute until lightly browned. Now put the garlic on top of the roast. Add 2 cups of water to the skillet to loosen any remaining drippings. Pour this over the roast. Sprinkle the thyme and parsley on top of the garlic.
  3. Cover and cook for 2 hours at 425 F. While this is cooking prepare your veggies to add to the roast.
  4. After 2 hours, add 1 more cup of water, the vegetables and diced tomatoes to the roasting pan. Stir gently.
  5. Cook roast for 1 more hour checking for the tenderness of the meat (it's done when the meat shreds with a fork and potatoes are tender, not mush).
