Hoedown BBQ Chuck Roast

I've been M.I.A. today because I've been rummaging. I woke up super early this morning so I could drive an hour to a really great city wide garage sale. This is my 7th year going. I didn't buy nearly as much stuff as previous years. If you have a baby you could buy things galore. The older they get, the harder it is for me to find things. Chase's the youngest and I found him the most. The best purchase for myself was a really nice Taste of Home cookbook. I can't wait to read it! I have gotten a few days behind on my posts. I made this chuck roast last Sunday night for Mother's Day dinner. Rachel posted this recipe a few weeks ago and I couldn't wait to try it out. Everyone loved this! Thanks Rachel for the awesome recipe :) We will definitely make it again!

HOEDOWN BBQ CHUCK ROAST
1 boneless beef chuck roast (4 lb), 2 inches thick
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 to 2 garlic clove, minced
1/8 tsp pepper


Trim fat from beef roast. In a large resealable food storage plastic bag, mix remaining ingredients. Add roast; turn to coat and seal bag. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight, turning once or twice to marinate.Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove roast from marinade; reserve and refrigerate marinade. Place roast on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium-low heat 50 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes or until of desired done-ness, turning once and basting with reserved marinade during last 15 minutes of cooking time. Discard any remaining marinade.

*To bake the roast, place in shallow roasting pan; bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, turning once and basting with reserved marinade during last 15 minutes of baking time.

This looks good!

It must've been a big weekend for garage sales. My sis was out bragging about the big garage sales with fancy baby clothes this morning. You're right, the older they get, the harder it seems to find clothes. Good luck!

I can't wait for summer days when I can cook BBQ just like this. Delish!!

This sounds delicious heidi and it looks great. I love garage sales also. So much fun. I agree though it is hard to find things as the kids age.. they always want abercrombie or coach or anything over $50.00.. I keep telling them not in this lifetime.. my oldest is only 11 for crissakes.

My husband would be in heaven if I made this! He loves steak and I don't make if for him nearly enough!

That looks good. I have been waiting for you to post this recipe ever since you had it on your list to make. I have two big chuck roasts in the freezer so this will be perfect for the second one. Dh wants traditional pot roast with the other. What did you serve it with rice or potatoes or pasta sounds a bit asian.

This looks so good, I love all the flavors!

Mommy's Kitchen- I served it with a baked potato bar, baked beans and steamed veggies. It really doesn't have an Asian flavor even though it has the soy. It tastes like really good bbq! It would be good with tater salad or cole slaw too.

This is my kind of dish. I'll have to get a roast and give it a try.

I sometimes forget good old fashioned meat dishes. This looks so good and like just the kind of thing my husband would LOVE!
