What is the best wine to use for pot roast?
Always use a wine you are happy to drink in your cooking. If you don’t like drinking the wine, you won’t like it in a dish either. This is especially important for this particular recipe because the most prominent ingredient is wine. This recipe recommends dry red wine; do not use sweet wine. Look for Cabernet, Merlot, or a red wine blend. Choose the dry red wine you like; it depends on your preference.
What to serve with red wine pot roast?
I highly recommend a puree. It can be mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes or chunky mashed spuds if you like texture. In addition, it goes perfectly with roasted veggies or fresh bread. On the side include a green salad or my special Christmas Salad.
