Yum! Perfect for roasting during our last spring blizzard!

Jill, thought you might need a good chuckle! My husband finally made this roast and said he was going to use this recipe. Fast forward , I came home to the very strong smell of vinegar . He told me the recipe called for Apple cider vinegar. My comment was okay….🤷🏻‍♀️ The roast was delicious!!!. Days later I looked at that recipe and it said Apple Cider , not vinegar! 😂😂😂😂😂. Of course I would not suggest this swap. Roast was perfect, did not taste like vinegar, but the vegetables did! LOL.

I just followed your recipe Jill for cooking the chuck Roast and it was perfect! Had a dinner party for family that had not ever tasted Buffalo! All were beyond impressed and loved it!! Time to order more chuck roasts and impress the next group!!

Would you mind sharing your recipe/instructions for the cabernet sage sauce, please? I’ve made some wonderful soups with this roast, but would like to try your braise with roasted veggies. Thank you!

You mention a Cabernet sage sauce , can you post the recipe?

I made this today. Wonderful comfort food while practicing social distancing. I didn’t have apple cider, so I used Guinness and water for braising liquid.

For over 40 years I have refused to eat commercially raised meat (thus becoming essentially a pescatarian). However, once I found Wild Idea (and a farm in Indiana that does it Right), I have learned how to cook meat once in a while. Well, I finally gathered up the nerve to try this recipe for the chuck roast, and my husband and I thought we’d died and gone to heaven. Incredible! Thank you, Jill!

I can watch the video, but can’t seem to find a written out recipe for this roast. What am I missing here?

Hope that’s helpful!

Hi Jill, Thank you for this fabulous video. I look forward to cooking my very first chuck roast. Will you please send me the Cabernet Sauvignon sauce recipe?

March 14, 2021

Hi Joyce. You should have received a roast cooking instruction card with the Cabernet Sauvignon Sage Sauce included. I have sent it on to your email. Thank you!

Thank You JILL for emailing the recipe for your Cabernet Sage Wine reduction sauce! I studied & closely followed the directions to gain a marvelous sauce for the 3 meals we enjoyed of the 3 lb roast. I saved the roast drippings to top off the remaining sauce for our 3rd & final meal. Thanks much for making your excellent recipes available to us. For me they make the transition from beef to buffalo much healthier and lots of fun!
