Peppered Cross Rib Roast

Preparing a cross rib roast is incredibly simple.  A Cross rib roast is a cut from the Chuck section or shoulder portion of the carcass.  It is also known as the Chuck Shoulder Roast and it is best prepared braised, or dry roasted low and slow.  This is my family’s favorite cut of beef and when it goes on sale for under $3/lb, I always buy 2 – one for the crock pot and one for the freezer.  The cross rib roast recipe below combines peppercorns, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and seasonings and you braise the meat in 2 cups of water for 3.5 to 4 hours.  You can also use a slow cooker and achieve the same result without heating the whole house with the oven.  The result is fork tender beef roast that tastes as amazing as it smells when it’s cooking.
