This roast and potatoes is so rich and so tasty. The wine subtly soaks itself into the meat and enriches the sauce, and the potatoes and chives are a perfect complement. It’s a lovely and light “meat and potatoes” meal that will tempt all the palates at your table.
You can use a cooking wine or dry red wine for this roast. And please…please…please…pretty please…with 3 cherries on top…please read the directions closely.
I do NOT want you emailing and commenting that your potatoes turned to mush. There is a way to prevent that. So read closely 😛
Hope you enjoy this “budget gourmet” meal in the Instant Pot!
