I have a 4 lbs Chuck Roast from my favorite farmer and am cooking it up this weekend. My sister is coming over and is a Vegetarian. I really want to cook this roast up, pot roast style with some beef shank, but the sister can't eat the vegetables that I will cook with it, since they are cooked with meat.
On the side, we'll have brussel sprouts, ala Jaque Pepin, and what else?
Normally, I would make something with lots of vegetarian options, but this roast is ready to go and I've been dying to try it.
