Boeuf à la Mode

Boeuf à la Mode

French Tuesday with Dorie?  So, I’m a few days late, but this French Fridays with Dorie recipe was worth the wait! Boeuf à la Mode (aka “Great Pot Roast”) is truly a great pot roast.

First, my chuck roast marinated overnight in a full bottle of red wine along with some veggies and herbs.  After browning the meat, it simmered for hours in the oven making the house smell wonderful!

I like the effect the steam had in this photo:

I served the pot roast with steamed carrots and mashed potatoes to make a hearty, delicious, truly fabulous meal the whole family enjoyed.

Great Pot Roast!

I reheated the leftovers the next day, and the roast was even better!  The extra cooking time made the meat so tender, it almost melted in our mouths.  So delicious!  This may be my go-to pot roast recipe from now on.

This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie, an online cooking group making our way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table one recipe a week!

  1. Looks fabulous with mashed potatoes! Wasn’t this wonderful?

  2. Yours looks exactly the way I imagined this should look. I am going to retry this with chuck. The cut I used just got tough and didn’t do that shreddy thing that I’m sure made this worth the wait. Perfect with mashed potatoes!

  3. Okay, I am definitely going to have to catch up on this one soon!

  4. I love how dreamy the steam makes your photos look! 🙂 LOVE IT!!

    Didn’t you also keep a garden blog this past summer? I can’t for the life of me find it…. it was YOU wasn’t it???

  5. This was a big hit in my house! I made mine in a crock pot because I’m on vacation, and the house I am staying in didn’t have a dutch oven. It came out great! Yours looks luscious!

  6. Gorgeous! This looks like what I imagined it should look like.
