Cloves Are The Key Ingredient For A Boldly Flavored Pot Roast
Cloves are intense yet versatile enough to suit everything from chai spice tea to Indo-British dishes, and for pot roast, an overnight marinade is key to unlocking its flavor.
Simply toss a few cloves into your standard go-to pot roast marinade. As the chuck or brisket tenderizes in the oven or slow cooker, it'll absorb the flavorful brine.
Balance the spiciness of the cloves with white wine, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. For a rich version, make your clove marinade with cinnamon, allspice, and a dark beer or stout.
If you want a savory marinade, pair your cloves with coriander, cumin, Szechuan peppercorns, brown sugar, and red wine. For a slight sweetness, use cloves and apple cider.
However, less is more when it comes to powerful, aromatic cloves — if their oils over-infuse, the dish's flavor can become unpleasantly sharp and astringent.
Whole cloves also make an aesthetically pleasing garnish when you plate your pot roast, perfect for cold-season dinners and holiday parties.
