Pot Roast Stew for my FBP

My FBP (Favorite Bass Player) and I have been dating for 2 1/2 years, and 2 of those years he lived in Nashille while I lived in Seattle.  Yesterday, after 3 days of driving alone he moved to Seattle.  So I wanted to make him something epic that would coat his tummy in a comforting way, and let him know just how much I love him for making the move so we can be together.  Thank you for all of your suggestions!  This is what I decided to make!  Oh, YES he loved it!  Plus he had seconds!  SCORE!



Pot Roast Stew 

2 - 3 pound beef top round
4 cloves garlic
1 white onion
4 carrots
4 stalks celery
1 lb. small red potatoes
1 cup red wine
1 can cream of mushroom
1/2 cup beef broth
1/2 cup homemade salsa (optional, I used it for a little heat) 
Flour to coat the meat
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 tbsp. dried thyme 
butter
olive oil
salt and pepper

Rinse and pat the meat dry, then coat in the flour.  In a large dutch oven, brown on all sides.  Typically 4 - 5 minutes per side.  Remove from pan. 

Add all veggies to pan minus the potatoes.  You will add them later.  Let the veggies go about 3 minutes or so, you don't want them soften.  Add the rosemary and thyme, salt and pepper.  Add the meat back to the pot. 

In a separate bowl, mix together cream of mushroom, beef stock, wine, and salsa.  Then pour over meat and mix into pot.  Turn up the heat and let the mixture come to a boil. 

Now pop into a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours. 

Check meat and add your potatoes.  Turn down oven to 250 and cook for another 1 1/2 hours.  Make sure to baste the meat with the juices in the last 30 minutes or so.  

Remove pot from oven, and return to stove.  Add a small mixture of butter and flour to make a thicker sauce.  Let it heat through, and then serve with a warm roll!
