Yankee Pot Roast
In New England tradition, we are serving up some hearty Yankee pot roast! Typically, this pot roast dish sticks a chuck roast in a slow-cooker with root vegetables such as carrots and potatoes. You can certainly skip the step of searing your roast, but that lovely char is really what infuses the meat with an unbeatable depth of flavor. Plus, if you didn’t, it just wouldn’t be a true pot roast. Our recipe leaves it out, but you can always add a splash of a strong red wine, such as merlot. Also, if you prefer a using a Dutch oven to do all your cooking in, by all means!
