French Onion Roast Beef


French Onion Roast Beef – so-called because I first made it with leftover French Onion Soup Broth. It’s not exactly quick, but it’s pretty easy and delicious~ Clay


  • 1 Beef Chuck Roast 
  • 1.52 cups Onions, sliced (White, Yellow, Vidalia, shallots, if you want, mix it up)
  • 36 Garlic Cloves, smashed with the flat of a knife (or palm or whatever)
  • 12 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons neutral oil
  • 23 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 1 quart Beef Stock or leftover soup broth – ideally super beefy
  • Kosher salt
  • Black Pepper



  • Strain and freeze the remaining cooking liquid for your next roast. Keep the fat on top for searing beef and caramelizing the onions
