Greek Style Chuck Roast

Greek Style Chuck Roast

Recipe created by our partner Shadi HasanzadeNemati

When it comes to cooking chuck roast, I’m looking for easy, bright and flavorful. This Greek-style chuck roast checks all the boxes! With a wonderful spice combination and a touch of natural acidity from lemon, the marinade for this recipe is truly outstanding.

I prefer to marinate the chuck roast for at least one hour (preferably overnight) for all the flavors to combine. Using the slow cooker, I also add some peppers and onions for extra flavor. You can serve this chuck roast with some pita bread, potatoes, rice or even salad. You can even shred it and serve it gyro-style with yogurt sauce, cucumbers and herbs!
