Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Season the Chuck roast with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.
  2. In a large heavy bottomed pan sear both sides of the roast until browned. Deglaze the pan with the balsamic vinegar and cook for one minute.
  3. Add the water and onion to the pan. Bring to a boil.
  4. Cover and simmer on low for 3 to 4 hours.
  5. Carefully remove the meat from the pan to a large bowl. Break carefully into chunks and remove any large pieces of fat or other refuse.
  6. Whisk the xanthan gum into the broth and add the meat back to the pan.
  7. Serve over “Better Than Potatoes” Cheesy Cauliflower Purée, garnished with lots of fresh chopped parsley.

To make in the Instant Pot:

  1. Cut your chuck roast in half so you have two pieces. Season the roast with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder on all sides. Using the saute feature on the instant pot, brown the roast pieces on both sides.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, 1 cup water, and 1/2 cup onion to the meat. Cover and seal, then using the manual button set the timer for 35 minutes. When the timer runs out, release the pressure by moving the lever to the “venting” setting. Once all the pressure is released, uncover the pot.
  3. Carefully remove the meat from the pan to a large bowl. Break carefully into chunks and remove any large pieces of fat or other refuse.
  4. Use the saute function to bring the remaining liquid to a boil in the pot, and simmer for 10 minutes to reduce.
  5. Whisk in the xanthan gum, then add the meat back to the pan and stir gently.
  6. Turn off the heat and serve hot over cauliflower puree, garnished with lots of fresh chopped parsley.
