Sunday Pot Roast

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.

I don't feel like I can give an accurate review bc I didn't have all ingredients on hand. I only had about 1/2 cup of white wine and no Rosemary. I know red wine would make a huge diff. I put everything in a crock pot on high for 4 hours. It was good but I've had better. I will try again with all ingredients but I might lay off the oregano. Too much. I strained two cups of liquid off and heated in a pan. Added a lil kitchen bouquet and mixed about a TBL of corn starch in a cup with a lil water. Added to the strained broth to make a nice thick gravy.

Don't be shy on the wine. Use the suggested amount or more. It was still quite yummy with the water/wine combo, but I know it could be better. Next time I won't be so timid!

Delicious! Hubby loved how creamy the potatoes turned out and I loved the depth of flavor the wine gave to everything.

Made this in the slow cooker. It was very tasty.

Made it with a deer ham, added baby bellas whole, because they needed to be eaten and bell peppers because I like them, also 1/4 c worcestershire. My new favorite, almost beats my late father's famous leg of lamb roast.

Mmmmm! Excellent recipe! This will be my new go to recipe for Pot Roast. Thanks very much for sharing it.

This was the best pot roast I have ever made...I had to modify my cooking method with it because I don't have an oven save pot. I followed the directions up until it was time to put it on the oven and just put it in my crock pot. I did add some extra broth and wine to cover the roast.

Really terrific for an easy winter weekend meal. I love that you can put it in a pot, clean up the kitchen, then forget about it for 3-5 hours. I tried cooking it on a much lower temperature (280F) for another hour, and it was even more tender. Of course, this approach depends upon the size of the beef; use an instant-read thermometer to ensure doneness.
