What You'll Need

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) boneless beef chuck roast
  • 4 carrots, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 ribs celery, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 onions, quartered
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

What to Do

  1. Combine oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger in a large resealable plastic storage bag; seal and shake to combine ingredients. Add beef, seal bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Place beef and marinade in a Dutch oven. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour. Add carrots, celery, and onions. Cover and simmer about 1-3/4 hours more, or until meat and vegetables are tender. Remove meat and vegetables to a platter; cover to keep warm.
  3. Combine cold water and cornstarch; add to pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened. Slice the meat across the grain. Serve gravy over meat and vegetables.


It's easy to switch this up and make a sweet-and-sour version by simply adding a drained, 16-ounce can of pineapple chunks with the carrots.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was a great infusion of flavor with the sweet and sour version and a nice change from the same pot roast I always make. I added sliced water chestnuts, too, and served it on steamed basmati rice.

I am allergic to soy, is there something I can use in place of soy sauce?

Hi there! If you'd like to leave out the soy sauce you can just add 1 teaspoon of salt and some browning sauce to give it color. There's also an ingredient called "coconut aminos," which is a gluten and dairy-free replacement for soy sauce. It can be a little tricky to find at times, but some supermarkets do carry it. We suggest calling ahead and making sure yours does before you make the trip!

I just read another post on this site where someone recommended Bragg's Aminos instead of soy sauce, because she had to cut back on sodium and even low sodium soy sauce was too high.oo high. I don't know if there's anything in Bragg's Aminos that you'd be allergic to, but if you Google it, you can research it. It was available on Amazon. It sure doesn't have a very appetizing name though!!
