Burgundy Pot Roast

Oxmoor House
Burgundy adds a rich depth of flavor to this traditional pot roast. You can substitute a dry red wine, such as merlot or cabernet sauvignon, for the Burgundy. If you prefer not to use wine, use 1 cup of less-sodium beef broth.
16 servings (serving size: 3 ounces roast, 1/2 cup vegetable mixture, and 1/4 cup gravy)
