My son asked why this tasted like hand sanitizer. The amount of wine seemed too much but the chickpea salad was yummy.

I loved it! I prepared it before I went to bed and let it cook in slow cooker/instapot over night. The onion missing in the ingredients did catch me off guard, luckily I had tons of shallots. Overall my family of 6 was very happy with the meal.

This is very good, although honestly the best part was the salad . I'm trying not to waste anything , so I used the cilantro stems. Per the comments , I braised in the combo steam oven. Set aside the 'gravy' and the carrots for a second meal with smashed potatoes .

I made this over the weekend. I added a scallion rather than the phantom onion listed in directions. I also really enjoyed the salad with this roast. I served it with sliced avocado. It was the perfect Sunday dinner.

Made this last night. Was never a fan of pot roast growing up (Sorry mom!) but the intro paragraph caught my eye and I was intrigued enough to try it. My family LOVED it!! (Unfortunately no leftovers!). The beef was tender and delicious and the chickpea salad was light and bright and lended this dish a very modern twist on an old and tired classic.

Is there a way to do this without a slow cooker? Any advise?

Absolutely. If you put the cover on your Dutch oven and cook in the oven on low heat (200-225F) it will braise. I would check it after a couple of hours to see how it's doing. Oven temperatures can vary a bit even if your oven is regularly calibrated, so I usually just pay closer attention than if it's in my slow cooker. Good luck!

Hi—the roast portion of the method calls for adding an onion, but none is noted in the ingredients. What kind of onion and how much? Thanks!

The epicurious.com version has an additional ingredient -- one large sweet onion, large diced.
