Preheat oven to 325 °F (160 °C).

In a large, deep, oven-safe skillet, melt butter over high heat and sear blade roast for 3–4 minutes on each side. Add onion and garlic and cook 2 minutes. Cover with 5 cups (1.25 L) of water, add herbs and spices, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and continue cooking in the oven for 2 hours.

Remove beef from broth. Let cool until lukewarm, then debone and shred meat. Discard excess fat.
