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.
