Pot Roast | Basics with Babish

  • Am 14 Feb 2019 veröffentlicht

    I like to make a gravy with the liquid from my red wine pot roast and parmesan cheese. I usually leave out potatoes because I make mashed potatoes on the side,sometimes with fontina cheese,cream cheese and chives. It is comfort food for sure.

    The broth came out amazing, but the eye of round roast came out too chewy as I feared. Roast needs to be fatty to come out right. I’ll definitely substitute another cut of meat next time.
