McGraw grew up with five sisters in a small town in Long Island. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he earned three varsity letters in baseball. McGraw finally moved to St. Louis, Missouri in 1999.
Kelly, an Emmy nominated journalist, started at KSDK in 1998, and has a love affair with St. Louis and St. Louisans. She did take a short break from her adopted hometown and moved to California to anchor mornings at one of KSDK’s sister stations in Sacramento, but St. Louis kept calling her name. At the beginning of 2014 she teamed up with McGraw in the Morning. When she’s not working, you’ll find her advocating for pets during the week. She loves hanging out with friends, volunteering, traveling and discovering all the fabulosity of St. Louis with her pooch, LaRue.
- 3 pound boneless beef chuck roast

- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 medium red onions, cut into quarters
- 4 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

- 1 head garlic, top cut off to expose cloves
- ¾ cup tomato paste
- 2 bay leaves
- 3 sprigs rosemary
- 1 ½ cups red wine, preferably cabernet
- 4 cups beef broth
- Preheat oven to 340 degrees. Season meat generously with salt and pepper. On the stove top, heat oil in a large Dutch oven, or other heavy roasting pan with a lid, over medium-high heat. Sear the meat until a dark crust forms, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove meat to a plate.
- Reduce heat to medium and add butter to the pan. Melt the butter and add the whole head of garlic and vegetables, stirring frequently and scraping the bottom of the pot, until the vegetables start to color, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Add tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, until it darkens slightly, about 5 minutes.
- Add bay leaves, rosemary and wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced to a thick gravy consistency, 5 to 7 minutes.
- Return meat to the pot. Add broth, then cover the pot and transfer to the oven. Cook for 2 hours 20 minutes.
- Let roast sit at room temperature for at least 10 minutes. Remove meat to a cutting board to slice. Discard bay leaves and rosemary stems. Squeeze any garlic cloves remaining in their skins into the stew and discard the skins. Serve slices of meat in shallow bowls along with the vegetables and a generous amount of cooking liquid ladled over top.
