From: Cochon Butcher
4 lbs rump roast
2 cups crimini mushrooms, chopped in ½ inch pieces
1 cup carrots, chopped in ½ inch pieces
1 cup onion, chopped in ½ inch pieces
1 cup par cooked potatoes, chopped in ½ inch pieces
2 cups red wine
1 cup stock (or water)
Directions: Place roast in a roasting pan or rack and cook at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes to form a nice brown crust. Add the chopped vegetables and the wine and reduce heat to 300 degrees. Cook for about one hour and 15 minutes for medium rare. Remove meat from pan and place the roasting pan over a medium high burner. Add stock and cook vigorously for 3 to 5 minutes to slightly intensify broth. Serve to accompany the roast.
