  • 7-quart Dutch Oven


  • 3 to 4 pound chuck roast, cut into 4-inch pieces
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 yellow onions, peeled and quartered
  • 4 large carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound baby mushrooms, halved
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup red wine
