I love preparing roast on the weekends. Not only does it remind me of home cooked meals with my family but it is also a great way to get a large amount of meat to use for leftovers during the week. For this dish, I used a 4 lb bison roast but you can easily use beef roast or pork. The red wine adds just a touch of flavor without an overpowering taste. It also helps to tenderize the meat. We kept this meal simple with just serving the roast with some fresh steamed vegetables and a garden salad. If you have leftovers, it makes a delicious Italian-style stir-fry or even a great BBQ sandwich! Makes about 8 servings
