    Chef #843959's Note:

    My grandmother used to make this Pot Roast all the time. The key is using a little better cut of meat then "Chuck", and cooking slowly. I have embelished the recipe slightly, using wine and more herbs. My grandmother was a tea-totaler! By cooking at a lower oven setting, the meat will just fall apart! I use a top of the round roast, but you can also use a bottom of the round.

      This is a nice pot roast with an excellent gravy!! The wine that was used was Merlot to make the gravy. I was in a hurry so roasted the beef at 350 degrees for 2 hours and then at 375 degrees after veggies were added for 1 1/4 hours. Made for January Special - Bargain Basement Tag Game 2011
