Chuck roasts are from the chuck primal cut. This cut comes from the forequarters of the cow and these muscles get a lot of exercise which means that cuts of meat from this section tend to be on the tougher side.
However, a chuck roast does not deserve it's "tough" reputation. With just a bit of extra work and the right cooking method, chuck roast can make a delicious and tender meal!
We like to keep any left-over meat from a slow-cooked roast to eat on sandwiches at another meal.
Lunch Idea: Pair the heated left-over roast with a sourdough bun, BBQ sauce, and a slice of your favorite cheese for a sandwich that will leave your taste buds begging for more!
