2/3 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup sliced carrots

Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery and carrots. Sauté for 5 to 7 minutes. Move vegetables to the sides; brown all sides of chuck roast. Add wine, garlic, thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, salt and pepper.

Cover and simmer 2-1/2 to 3 hours, until meat is fork tender.

Place roast on serving platter; cover and keep warm. Puree vegetables and cooking liquid in a blender until smooth. Season with additional salt and pepper, if necessary. Add freshly ground nutmeg.  Serve with the roast.
