This is one of those ‘fix-it-and-forget-it’ recipes that you can start early in the morning and not give another thought to until you are ready to serve it later in the day. But with its hearty beef flavor, topped with homemade onion jam, your guests will feel like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen preparing a special meal. We like to serve our Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries with these, as they can be made ahead of time and simply crisped up in the oven before serving. We also make the slider rolls ahead of time and reheat when ready to use.


To prepare rolls: on a day before you plan to serve the sandwiches, place frozen rolls 3” inches apart on a baking sheet. Spray a piece of plastic wrap with canola spray, cover rolls, and allow to rise for 4-5 hours. Heat oven to 350 degrees. After the rolls have risen, remove plastic wrap and place on center rack in oven. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Meanwhile, melt butter and set aside. Remove rolls from oven Immediately brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with Fleur De Sel. Allow to cool. When ready to serve, slice in half horizontally and reheat at 275 degrees for 5-10 minutes.


Rub chuck roast with seasoning blend and set aside to stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, wine, water, salt, and pepper.


Place meat in slow cooker. Pour wine mixture over the top, cover, and set cooker to cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove from pot and place, covered, on a cutting board. Let meat stand for 15 minutes before shredding.  Return to slow cooker, toss with pan juices. Cover let stand on ‘warm’ for 10-20 minutes before serving. 


Ladle meat into preheated rolls. Top with sliced cheese, if using. Spoon onion jam over the top, and serve.

No Home Chef's kitchen is
complete without Tellicherry
peppercorns, which are considered the finest pepper in the world. Left on the vine longer than other black peppercorns, these berries are given time to develop their complex, robust flavor to develop more fully.
