  1. Trim fat from meat. Place meat in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour wine over meat; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Drain meat, reserving wine. Pat meat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle meat with salt and black pepper. In a 4- to 6-quart Dutch oven, over medium heat brown meat on all sides in hot oil.
  3. In a medium saucepan, bring reserved wine to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until wine is reduced by half, about 1-1/2 cups. Stir in beef broth, tomato paste, mustard, herbes de Provence, garlic and bay leaves. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes more. Pour wine mixture over meat in Dutch oven; add onion.
  4. Bake, covered, in a 325 degree F oven for 2-1/2 hours. Add carrots, parsnips, mushrooms and celery. Bake, covered, about 1 hour more or until meat is very tender. Transfer meat and vegetables to a large serving platter, reserving juices in Dutch oven. Cover meat and vegetables with foil to keep warm.
  5. For wine sauce, skim off any fat from juices. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until juices are slightly thickened. Season to taste.
  6. Slice meat or use a fork to break meat apart into pieces. Serve wine sauce with meat, vegetables and noodles. Sprinkle meat and vegetables with parsley. If you like, serve with French bread. Makes 8 servings.

This was THE best pot roast I've ever made! It will from now on be the only pot roast I make.

This was pretty good. I've made similar in the Dutch oven, but this had a better flavor. My only issue is that my meat came out really dry. I honestly can't blame that on the recipe. It might have been the cut of meat. If I make this again, I'll probably try the crock pot instead of the Dutch oven.
