2 c Burgandy
1/2 c Cider vinegar
2 Celery tops
1 md Onion, sliced
4 Lemon slices
1 lg Carrot, pared and sliced

Wipe roast with damp paper towels. Arrange bacon slices over inside surface of meat; roll up, and tie securely.

Coat roast well with flour. Slowly heat oil in Dutch oven. Add roast; cook, over medium heat, until browned all over-about 20 minutes.
