Cook Time: 9 hours

Total Time: 9 hours


  • 3 1/2 to 4 lb pot roast (lean chuck, bottom round, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1/2 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 package Melissa's dried exotic mushrooms (shiitake, porcini, woodear, etc)
  • 8 ounces fresh button mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup good dry red wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a small bowl or cup, cover the dried mushrooms with very hot water. Meanwhile, dredge the roast in the seasoned flour. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat; add onions and dredged roast; cook until the roast is nicely browned on both sides. Transfer meat and onions to the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Add red wine to the skillet and stir to loosen browned bits; pour over roast. Add mushrooms with soaking liquid and the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Thicken the juices (reduce on the stove top if very watery) with a mixture of water and cornstarch or flour. I served this with roasted eggplant and mashed potatoes.
You could use all fresh button mushrooms or a different mixture of dried. Dried mushrooms with the soaking liquid add quite a bit of flavor.
