    1. 1
      POT ROAST: Use a metal skewer to poke the meat all over.
    2. 2
      Place the meat in a bowl or glass loaf pan that is just large enough to fit it. Pour the buttermilk over the meat.
    3. 3
      Allow to marinate in the refrigerator, for 2-3 days, stirring occasionally.
    4. 4
      Remove the meat from the buttermilk (discard buttermilk!) and dry off with clean lint-free towel.
    5. 5
      On medium heat, sear the meat on all sides in a Dutch oven in the butter and olive oil.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    7. 7
      Remove meat to platter; pour out the browning fat and discard. Note: I don't discard the browning fat. It is too good to waste and really adds a delicious flavor to the gravy.
    8. 8
      Next, add the red wine, stock, French tarragon and peppercorns to the pot. Bring to boil and skim off the top.
    9. 9
      Return the meat to the pot and bake, covered, for 3 hours or until tender. One hour before serving, add the potatoes and carrots.
    10. 10
      GRAVY: Transfer the meat and vegetables to a platter and bring the sauce to a boil on the stove top.
    11. 11
      Spoonful by spoonful, add the arrowroot and water and whisk in the pot to make a gravy of desired thickness. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the pot roast.
