  • Summary

    This is a perfect early fall meal, capturing the abundance of peppers and onions that the harvest has brought. Pot roast sometimes gets a bad rap for being dry, boring, and bland. I understand the hesitation with dishes that maybe you had bad versions of growing up, but this recipe shines a new light on a classic. Using chuck and cooking it slow-and-low allows it time to fully develop its flavor. Pair it with a fresh chickpea salad to brighten up the dish.

    Ingredients

    • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (about 3 pounds)
    • Kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 medium carrots, large-diced
    • 1 large sweet onion, large-diced
    • 6 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 6 bay leaves
    • 6 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 1 quart beef stock, preferably homemade
    • 1 quart dry red wine
    • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds, toasted and ground
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 large red onion, halved lengthwise, root end of each half left intact
    • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed, or 10 ounces dried chickpeas, cooked
    • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh cilantro (from about 1 bunch)
    • 4 red jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced
    • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 6-quart (or larger) slow cooker
