CREAMY MUSHROOM BEEF CHUCK ROAST

Posted on

This Creamy Mushroom Beef Chuck Roast Recipe had everyone drooling on Instagram when I posted the photo of my Sunday dinner!

This makes the BEST gravy I have ever tasted. The fresh mushrooms cook for hours and release all their moisture into the gravy, the real onion cooks and mostly disintegrates….I am drooling just thinking about it.
