He must have had some brownie points stashed away somewhere for me to have even entertained the idea of a succulent and mouthwatering beef pot roast that particular evening. If you have been an ardent follower of Safari of the Mind, you will know that I’m talking about my husband, Bert. It’s not very often that I cook a beef pot roast these days, but don’t get me wrong, we both love it, but for health reasons I try to limit our beef intake. You should have seen his expression when I pulled this out of the oven! I can’t tell you how moist and flavorful this one pot wonder was. The prep work didn’t take too long either, and then, wham, boom, bang in the oven it went with all those flavors, perfuming the entire house. I literally threw splashes of red wine in the pot without measuring, and wow, this was a winner! Inexpensive cuts of beef are best for pot roasts.
