I've been trying a handful of Pot Roast recipes lately and I always go back to the one from Giada De Laurentis. It is the right amount of tender beef, complex broth/wine based flavor with mushrooms and a very yummy sauce (made from the broth/wine/mushrooms). This Pot Roast smells amazing while it cooks and is the perfect recipe to make on the weekend or when I end up working from home. It takes a while to cook, but the results are delicious and worth the wait...
I usually buy the chuck roast from Costco and use a tasty red wine (cheap wine cheapens the taste of the roast). I've also substituted fresh, more common mushrooms for the porcini's.
