Preheat oven to 350˚F.

In a large Dutch oven, combine the chuck roast, olive oil, onion, and garlic. Sprinkle with thyme, rosemary, crushed red pepper, bay leaf, and salt and pepper. In a medium saucepan, bring the beef stock to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Add the tomato paste and red wine, and stir until well combined. Pour the stock mixture into the Dutch oven. Cover and cook for 3 1/2 hours, then fold in the carrots, celery, and potato. Return to the oven and cook, covered, for another 30 minutes to 1 hour, until the meat is very tender and the vegetables are done.
