  • Cut the roast in half and in a large skillet; brown each half on all sides in the olive oil. Remove and set aside.
  • In the same skillet with the oil, sauté onion, bell pepper and celery for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the tomato paste and stir for a couple of minutes to fry. Stir in the tomatoes and tomato sauce.
  • While this mixture slowly simmers, add to taste the thyme, bay leaf, oregano, cayenne, salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Add wine and Parmesan. Let simmer about 45 minutes.
  • Add carrots, mushrooms, and both pieces of roast and any juices that have accumulated. Cover and cook over low heat for a 2 to 3 hours.
  • Remove beef and slice against grain into half-inch slices. Serve with the tomato gravy on top or place the slices back into the gravy and cook on low another 15 to 20 minutes for a more traditional meal.
  • Serve roast and gravy over mashed potatoes or spaghetti (as suggested in the recipe) and top with additional parmesan cheese.
