  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 pinch paprika, or to taste

  • 1 pinch garlic powder, or to taste

  • 1 pinch onion powder, or to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 pounds chuck roast

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed beef consomme

  • 1 cup water

  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 1 ½ (1 ounce) envelopes dry onion soup mix

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 carrots, chopped, or to taste

  • 3 mushrooms, sliced, or to taste

  • ¼ onion, chopped, or to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  2. Whisk flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper together in a bowl. Dredge roast in flour mixture to evenly coat.

  3. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat; brown roast in melted butter, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer roast to an oven bag and place into a 13x9-inch casserole dish.

  4. Whisk condensed beef consomme, water, garlic, onion soup mix, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl; pour into the oven bag over the roast. Seal the bag and cut 6 small slits in the top of the oven bag for ventilation.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour 45 minutes; add carrots, mushrooms, and onion to the oven bag and bake until vegetables are tender and roast is cooked through, about 45 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).


You can add potatoes or any other vegetables to the bag if you like.
