During the winter, there's nothing we want more than to cuddle up in front of the fireplace and nom on something warm. Serve up a delicious entree that will warm the bellies of your family this holiday by preparing this Yankee chuck beef pot roast.
Deeply flavored and so tender it'll fall apart once it hits your tongue, this pot roast is a great dish to prepare on a budget.
Yankee Magazine's Annie B. Copps shares a classic New England entrée that's made entirely in one pot. Inexpensive top round or chuck roast gets a slow braise in red wine, beef stock and aromatics (carrots, celery, onions and garlic). After a leisurely 3½ - 4 hours in the oven, the roast is done and while it rests, Annie uses an immersion blender to purée the vegetables and braising juices - again in the same pot - to make the flavorful gravy.
