A Classic with Amore
Pot roast in general is such a classic. Gluten and Dairy Free Savory Italian Pot Roast gets a makeover with Italian flavors.
Pot roasts one of my absolute favorite Sunday dinners. It's pure comfort the first night and the gift that keeps on giving for the rest of the week. Pot roast for lunch the next day is the best, and the possibilities for the leftovers are endless.
Part of what makes this recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Savory Italian Pot Roast so special is the addition of Outside Table's Everyday Herb. Bursting with the garden-fresh flavors of organic thyme and oregano it also has a slight kick to bring excitement and layers of flavor.
I love all of Outside Table's rubs and sauces. You can taste the artisanal small-batch quality. All of their products are crafted with organic ingredients and give your food that slow-cooked flavor.
In addition to the Everyday Herb, rich red wine, sweet tomatoes, and a bounty of aromatics make this dish hearty, warming, and comforting. The only question is, are you serving it draped over mashed potatoes?
