I'm going to make this again when the weather is cold. This is probably the best thing I've ever tasted.
Always better the next day of course....it is guaranteed to please those who love old fashioned pot roast. The red wine/cognac gravy will make you cry.
I went all the way and served baked potatoes with sour cream. I also had fresh chives - finely chopped - and added them to the sour cream and let it chill to incorporate before serving. I also served green beans and french bread.
It's serious work but worth the time. If you want to impress the new in-laws, this will do it. Oh hell, I'll say it - though against my entire belief system....if the way to a man's heart is through his stomach....they should call this Proposal Pot Roast.
