Dutch Oven or Roasting Pan: For richer flavor; brown both sides with a little oil on the stovetop, remove roast, add wine and deglaze pan, stirring with a wooden spoon to dissolve brown bits and cooking until wine is almost gone. Add back roast and stock and continue with recipe.
If a thicker jus is desired: Remove ˝ cup of the juices, cool, whisk in cornstarch and slowly stir back into the pot - simmering until thickened. Allow about ˝ TBS cornstarch per cup of liquid.
