Pot roast, braised with lots of red wine...comfort food extraordinaire! This is the ultimate one-pot meal. Ideal for a weekend dinner because of its low maintenance as well as its need to cook for more than four hours. While it does, your home slowly fills up with the warmth of the oven and the irresistible rich aromas of beef, potatoes, carrots and onions slowly mellowing into their own savory sauce.
kelsoba ,Beautiful! My house smelled great, and the finished product was excellent. I usually crock pot my pot roasts, but I have noticed a stringy texture sometimes. This meat was tender and flavorful. The ingredient "3 medium onions" was somewhat vague--diced? sliced? chopped? I sliced, but it doesn't matter. You are going for the flavor not the texture. Winner!
jdriemeyer ,Awesome recipe! After starting the cooking, I discovered I had no red wine. I scrounged around, and substituted a mixture of white wine and brown ale. The roast was tasty, juicy, and wonderfully tender. Veggies cooked for 2 1/2 hours and were perfect. I will try again with red wine!
tmac123 ,I have make this recipe twice before. It is the best tasting, easy to make pot roast I have ever made. It even pleases my two kids that are the pickiest of eaters. Nothing better on a cold winter Sunday in Minnesota!
ccollett12 ,This is the best pot roast I have ever had. I didn't have rosemary or red wine so I'm sure it would be even better with it, but the paprika brings it to a whole new level I have never seen my husband and children gobble it up that fast before. This is my new go to roast recipe.
aij ,Great recipe.. like others added the veggies with about an hour left to cook and they came out great. Good flavor and it was enjoyed by all who tried it.
ruthclarke ,The meat was so tender it just pulled apart with a fork. I would agree with some other users and add the veg for the last hour or so. I'll def be making this again - such an easy Sunday dinner!
mommavalerie ,I added the veggies the last hour, per my neighbors advice, and they were prefect. I think if I had added them at the very beggining they would have been puree by the time it was done.
mpau0516 ,Perfect for tonight's low of -10 degrees. Heated the whole house with the best smell. This is my 10th time making this. As always, comes out perfect ! To the person who commented " bland", she probably had American paprika. Please switch to authentic Hungarian sweet paprika.
rugbyplayer ,This is a wonderful recipe for a cold winters evening or Sunday Lunch. I substituted percolated coffee (1cp) for the cup of wine and added parsnips at the beginning and French beans and celery with 1/2 an hour to go.
