Coming from a forgotten magazine many years ago, when I am craving comfort food, I often reach for this recipe. I serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.

Directions

  1. Cut 4 of the garlic cloves into thin slivers.
  2. Cut small slits in the roast and slide a garlic sliver into each one.
  3. Heat the oil in a large pot and brown the beef on all sides.
  4. Remove meat.
  5. Add onion and remaining garlic (I mince remaining garlic) to pot and cook until golden, about 10 minutes Return meat to pot and add the wine, stock, salt and pepper.
  6. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until tender, about 2 and a 1/2 hours.
  7. Turn the meat occasionally.
  8. Remove the meat and cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  9. Skim fat from cooking liquid.
  10. Bring the liquid to a boil and cook until reduced to about 1 1/2 cups.
  11. Serve this sauce with the pot roast.
