Dutch oven pot roast - How long? How hot?

jmunn | Sep 28, 200707:14 PM     15

I'm cooking a 5 lb. beef rib roast stovetop in a 7 qt. lodge cast iron dutch oven and have a few areas of concern...

Why brown the roast? How long should I brown for? Should I brown in the dutch oven or maybe use the oven broiler?

After browning, aprrox. what temp should I use to slow cook and for how long? I was under the impression that the longer and slower the better.

Also, I'm using a few cups of cabernet for moisture, if that makes any difference.

Thanks for the help
