Recipe for a Grilled Chuck Roast

I know. A lot of you are saying, "Grilling a chuck roast? Jess, you have to be out of your mind." Well, I'm not out of my mind. It is a quick and easy way to enjoy an inexpensive cut of meat without cooking it in a crock pot or in the oven with one of those bag things.

Here's a very easy recipe for you to try out and I'm sure you will like it.

1 (3-5 lb.) chuck roast
1 tsp. meat tenderizer
1/2 c. orange juice
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Sprinkle roast with tenderizer on both sides. Pierce deeply. Let stand one hour.
While the meat is tenderizing, mix the orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce together to create a marinade.
Pour marinade over roast and let stand. Turn and pierce several times. Refrigerate.
Sear on hot flame 10 minutes each side and lower flame and cook 15 to 20 minutes each side.

I think you will really enjoy this method for cooking a chuck. The meat tenderizer breaks down the meat and makes it very tender. Typically, you would cook this piece of meat in a crock pot for so that the slow and low method would break down the meat.
