Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Malbec (Red Wine)
Please adjust the salt in the mix to your taste, start out with a bit less than the amount called for and add more later. I have found the amount was just right for my liking.
Strain the gravy and thicken with a flour slurry if necessary. This recipe makes a lot of good gravy.
Since I had time I seared the pot roast, but I am thinking that in a time crunch it won't be necessary.
For the wine, I used an Australian Malbec. But please, use any red wine that you would drink. Dornfelder, Merlot, Pinot Noir or Zinfandel would also very equal substitutes.
For all DIYers: any homemade season mix can be easily substituted for the store-bought ones. Allrecipes has many to choose from.
For other tasty additions: add pearl onions, peas, carrots,or potatoes. I have not tried these add-ons yet, so I can't speak for it. but I am sure it would be great.
