This red wine braised beef roast is an easy one-pot meal that is downright comfort food. One pot + beef roast + carrots + onions + garlic = food for the soul.
Lemme just tell you a little ‘ol tale…
Once upon a time there was a mom who was tired of washing 4,762 dishes every single night. She thought it was time for a dish break so opted for something that was made in one pot.
Why? Because Hello! One dish to clean, or technically, no pot to clean that night because she stored the leftovers in it in the fridge. It was a win-win because she made this one pot red wine braised beef roast with carrots, onions, and garlic.
In case you didn’t notice the person in the little tale was me. ;) Can I get an amen about those dang dishes?
A-M-E-N sister! It’s like they are ALWAYS there no matter how many times you do them.
And in summer…well the kids are home from school so there are even more dishes. I feel like I wash 97 cups a day between our kiddos and all the neighborhood kids. Tell me I’m not the only one that feels like this?!?!?
You too? Whew! (wipes sweat off brow)…
