We had another round of snow and ice last night! I'm not a winter person. I like 90 degrees and sunny in the forecast. However, these cold, gray days of winter do bring some wonderful things.
Comfort food is one of those wonderful things. I made a pot roast and thought I would share how I make mine.
I take a nice chuck roast and salt/pepper it on all sides.
Then in a heavy bottomed pan, brown it on all sides over medium heat in a little olive oil. I could just continue to cook it in this pot, but I like to forget I have it cooking until dinner. I use a crockpot set on low...the house smells wonderful all day!
I put about 1/2 cup of red wine and 1/2 cup of chicken stock in the bottom of my crockpot, put some sliced onion and carrots in then add my browned roast. Cover and cook on low for the day.
