Pinot Noir–Braised Pot Roast with Root Vegetables
This supertender pot roast from Ben Dailey of Cebo in the Finger Lakes is all about the wine. Because it's the only liquid the meat braises in, be sure to pick out one that's rich and fruity. Dailey loves the 2013 Pinot Noir from local winemaker Dr. Konstantin Frank.
