Recipe by evelyn/athens
Sort of a cross between a pot-roast and a stew. This is fantastic served over freshly mashed potatoes or polenta!

Delicious meal! We really enjoyed the flavours in this beef dish, the added vinegar gives it a real 'bite' but nicely so. I served over mashed potatoes, baby peas and carrot and swede for a really tasty family meal. It doesnt say when to add the tomato paste, but I just did so in step 8.Thanks for posting.
