  • 3 pounds English Roast
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Cooking Oil
  • 1 medium Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • 3 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • ¼ cup Tomato Paste
  • 2 cups Unsalted Beef Stock
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 sprig Rosemary


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Liberally dust roast with salt and pepper and pour cooking oil into Dutch Oven set to medium-high heat. Place roast in hot oil and sear on each side until browned.
  • Remove roast from Dutch oven and set aside on a plate.
  • Place chopped onions in Dutch oven (adding more oil if needed) and saute until tender and browning. Add minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
  • Stir in tomato paste and flour along with beef stock and Worcestershire sauce. Scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  • Return roast to Dutch oven, cover with lid and place in the oven for 3 hours.
  • After three hours turn the roast and add rosemary sprig. Return to oven for an additional hour, or until tender.
  • Remove roast and set on a cutting board, tented with aluminum foil, and set Dutch Oven on the stovetop. Remove the rosemary sprig and skim fat, then bring juices to a boil and reduce the liquid to thicken into a sauce. Taste for salt and adjust as needed.
  • Slice the roast against the grain or shred as desired. Serve with thickened liquid from pot.

You can substitute ½ cup of red wine for some for of the beef stock if desired. Cabernet sauvignon would be an excellent choice.
