Dust generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle flour over the chuck roast and pat to coat. The flour helps the roast develop a nice crust.
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven. Cook the roast until it browns on one side. Carefully flip and brown on the other side. Remove from the Dutch oven.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring the liquid to a boil. Turn off heat and braise in the oven until fall-apart tender. You can also find slow cooker and Instant Pot instructions.
