2 tablespoon Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Cornstarch

2 tablespoons Cold Water


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large cast iron pan heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat. While the oil is heating season the chuck roast with the garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Brown meat for 4 minutes on each side in the hot oil.

3. Meanwhile, spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with the olive oil cooking spray.. Layer the sliced mushrooms in the bottom of the pan, slice the onion and layer the onions on top of the mushrooms. When the chuck roast is done browning place it on top of the mushrooms and onions.

6. Remove the roast from the pan to a wood cutting board to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

7. In a medium saucepan, place the mushroom and onion liquid from the roast. Stir together the cornstarch and cold water to make a paste. Add the cornstarch paste to the mushroom mixture. Stir together well. Turn the heat on to medium and bring the gravy mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 3 minutes or until thickened.

8. Slice the roast against the grain. Serve with the gravy over the sliced roast. Enjoy!
