2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1 1/2 pounds boneless chuck pot roast, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1 (16-ounce) package frozen small whole onions
1/2 cup Merlot wine or beef broth
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce with basil, garlic and oregano
1 1/2 cups baby-cut carrots

Hot cooked spaetzle or hot cooked noodles


Heat oven to 325°F.

Melt butter in 6-quart ovenproof covered saucepan or Dutch oven until sizzling; add beef. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 5-8 minutes or until browned. Add onions, wine and hoisin sauce. Cover; bake 45 minutes.

Stir flour into tomato sauce in bowl. Add carrots and tomato sauce mixture to beef mixture. Continue baking, covered, 45 minutes or until meat and vegetables are tender. Serve over hot cooked spaetzle.

Recipe Tip

Hoisin sauce is a thick, reddish-brown sauce made from soybeans, garlic, chile peppers and spices. It lends a sweet, spicy and salty flavor to food. Look for it bottled in the Oriental food section of the supermarket.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this on a cold, rainy, windy day at the beach. I wanted a hearty warming meal for friends. I,too, added additional wine and a bit more Hoisan Sauce, as well as some garlic cloves. I also made both potatoes and noodles. Everyone ravied and all had seconds.
Our family LOVED this recipe. I used a sirloin steak instead of a chuck roast...I am pretty sure any cut of beef would work, it becomes so tender after cooking. I also used beef broth and added some potatoes.
The sauce was too sweet for my family
This was so good. I added extra wine because I wanted more sauce and it turned out so flavorful. I served this with red potato's because I had them in the house but rice, or noodles of any kind will work great. I will make this again and again.
