Chuck Roast Inspo

David Chang did an Instagram Live, took some notes.

  • 4ish pounds of chuck roast
  • salt and pepper
  • big dutch oven situation, just put the meat in a big heavy thing
  • in the oven at 450 first hour covered, then bring down to 325
  • check on it in 2.5 hours
  • poke it - springy means it hasn't broken down muscle fibers
  • it can get browned nicely, you don't have to sear it first
  • cool for awhile, a couple hours if you're busy or it gets done faster than you thought. either way let it rest

what do you do with it

  • onions, garlic, big Napa cabbage; chop up that cabbage nice and big like
  • toss leftover veggies or extra veggies in, carrots, celery, whatever
  • put all the beef drippings in the pot with the veggies
  • slice the beef or chunk it up
  • vermicelli noodles
  • seasoning with just S&P lets you take it to whatever corner of the world you want when it's done
