DIRECTIONS

  • Rub the roast with 3 T. flour.
  • Heat oil in 5- to 6-quart ovenproof Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat until rippling but not smoking. Add the meat and brown on all sides.
  • Add broth, onion with cloves, bay leaf, thyme, salt and pepper. Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer, or place in a preheated 300 degree oven. Cook 2 hours or until almost fork-tender.
  • Scatter vegetables around meat. Cover and cook 1-1/2 hours longer or until meat and vegetables are tender. Remove meat from pot.
  • Strain juices from vegetables into a 1-quart saucepan.
  • (Can be prepared ahead to this point. Return meat and vegetables to pot. Cover pot and saucepan and refrigerate up to 48 hours.).
  • About 1 hour before serving, heat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk remaining 1/4 cup flour with the water until smooth.
  • Skim and discard fat from reserved vegetable liquid in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then whisk in flour mixture. Boil 2 to 3 minutes, whisking often until gravy has thickened.
  • Pour over meat and vegetables. Cover and cook or bake for 45 to 50 minutes until hot (meat thermometer inserted in thickest part should read 130 degrees).
  • Remove meat to serving platter. Remove vegetables with slotted spoon and arrange around meat. Pour gravy into gravy boat and serve alongside meat and vegetables.
  • Note: To peel onions, place in saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil, drain, chill in cold water, then slip off skins.
