Moroccan Pot Roast With Dried Cherry Couscous

It's important to build the flavors for this slow-cooked, Moroccan-inspired beef pot roast: we use a tomato braising liquid that's spiked with a lemony mint puree and ras-el-hanout, a Moroccan spice mixture.

Bruce Aidells' Pot-Roasted Grass-Fed Beef Chuck with Winter Root Vegetables

Some may argue that pot roast is not refined enough for a holiday meal. To those folks, I say, "Bah humbug!"

A flurry of root vegetables, shallots, slow cooked onions, garlic add deep vegetal flavor to complement the earthiness of the grass-fed beef. Best of all, the dish is almost entirely hands-off, sending its luscious aromas into the kitchen to entice even the most Scrooge-like of guests. More

An amber ale, or smoky red wine would sit very well next to this roast. More
