As you know, I have requested, i.e. begged, the family to come and eat a proper Sunday dinner. So for my first dinner, I whipped out a fantastic Pot Roast dinner. Now, I have made pot roast before but this time, I stepped up the recipe and the results were fantastic.
Set a sweet table!!!
With a simple centerpiece of shells.
I halved three onions and sauteed them in olive oil with butter, once browned, removed them. Next, sauteed carrots until tender and caramelized. I also removed the carrots from the pan.
Next, took a beautiful piece of chuck roast, salt and pepper on the outside and then browned in a beautiful olive oil.
Once browned, I removed the roast. Taking some leftover red wine, deglazed the pan. Basically, stirred the wine in the pan until all the crusty remains of the roast was removed.
Gently, I added the roast back to the pan, topped with the onions, carrots and peeled potatoes. I seasoned the dish with 2 T. of chopped thyme and rosemary, salt and pepper. Topped with two cups of red wine and 4 cups of beef stock. Put the lid on and placed in a 275 degree oven.
The entire Sunday dinner in one plate!!
Okay, maybe I need some rolls!!!
Absolutely delicious and so easy. Wonderful!!!
