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 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
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!
