Ginger Braised Beef Roast with Hoisin Jus

Ginger Braised Beef Roast with Hoisin Jus. A beautiful, fall-apart tender, braised pot roast with Asian inspired flavours. Served with a delicious beef jus that’s flavoured with Hoisin and soy sauce at the end.

This Ginger Braised Beef Roast with Hoisin Jus is definitely a different take on your Sunday pot roast. And a really delicious one too.

My kids and Kathryn, our spare teenager and frequent dinner guest, particularly liked the beef jus that we served with this roast.

It’s simply made from the leftover braising liquid. The liquid is simmered with Hoisin sauce and soy sauce for familiar Asian flavour that goes so well with the slow cooked beef.

The recipe calls for 3 cloves of garlic but you can add more or less to taste. For my taste, I at least double the garlic.

But then again, I am a fiend for the stuff. Very few roast dinners around here do not use it.

Can you ever get enough garlic? 

All three teenagers at the table devoured this meal in short order, even going back for seconds.

We served it with simple stir fried baby bok choy and peppers and some sweet potato mash for a completely satisfying dinner.

My beef cut of choice for this recipe is a chuck/blade roast. For the most part, it is called chuck in the US and blade roast in Canada.

You can also use beef brisket but that generally takes longer to cooking in the oven. Although that extra time is well worth it.

I like to use Chuck/Blade roast for a pot roast.

This Ginger Braised Beef with Hoisin Jus is an Asian inspired twist on a traditional pot roast. We served it with sweet potato mash and stir fried veggies.


  • 4 lb beef roast, chuck/blade, cross rib or sirloin work well
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp five spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground fennel seed
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 6 carrots, , cut in sticks or coins


  1. Season the roast with salt and pepper and brown on all sides in a cast iron pan with a little canola oil added to the pan. Transfer the roast to a covered roaster or heavy dutch oven.
  2. Add the beef stock, orange juice, onion, garlic, five spice powder, salt, pepper, ginger and honey. Stir to blend the ingredients together.
  3. Cover the roasting pan tightly with aluminum foil before adding the lid. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 3 to 4 hours until the meat is tender and almost falling apart.
  4. In the last half hour or so of cooking time add the carrots to the roasting pan.
  5. Remove the meat from the pan, cover with aluminum foil and hold in a 150 degree oven while you prepare the jus.
  6. Pour the beef braising liquid from the roasting pan into a saucepan and skim any excess fat.
  7. Simmer to reduce the volume by about 1/4, then add the soy sauce and Hoisin sauce. Simmer for just a few minutes more and serve with the carved beef roast.
  8. Delicious served with simple steamed rice or sweet potato mash and stir fried Chinese vegetables.

Made this amazing dish 3 weeks ago. We were 3 and all raved about it. My daughter is visiting from university and she'll be here this evening to try it. The 3 of us that had it earlier can't wait to have it as well. Yummy for my tummy😊
