  • Summary

    Brisket is the centerpiece of many holiday tables, but pot roast, cooked to succulent tenderness in a full-bodied braising liquid brightened with the tang of wine and tomato and enriched with a heady trio of cinnamon, bay leaf, and thyme is just as special without sacrificing tradition.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup matzoh cake meal
    • 4 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, divided
    • 1 (4 1/2-to 5-pound) beef chuck roast, tied
    • 1 large onion (about 1 pound), coarsely chopped (2 cups)
    • 2 large carrots (about 1/2 pound), coarsely chopped
    • 2 medium parsnips (about 1/2 pound), coarsely chopped
    • 2 cups full-bodied red wine
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes in juice
    • 5 full sprigs fresh thyme
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 (3-inch long) cinnamon stick
