Recipe by Dreamgoddess
READY IN: 2hrs 50mins




  • Heat oven to 350.
  • Heat oil in a deep oven casserole dish or pot, that has a tight-fitting lid.
  • Rub the roast with Lawrey's salt.
  • When oil is hot, brown roast on all sides in the hot oil; look for a nice brown crispy texture.
  • When all sides are nicely browned, remove roast to a platter.
  • Put allspice, cinnamon, bay leaves and shallots in the hot oil and stirfry until shallots begin to brown; do not burn.
  • Pour in beef broth and stir, scraping sides and bottom of pan.
  • Return roast and any drippings that collected on the platter to the pot, turn once, cover tightly and put in oven (I don't even peek for the first 2 hours).
  • Roast until meat pulls apart, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours- check closely.
  • Remove roast to serving platter.
  • Pick out the 6 allspice berries, 2 bay leaves and cinamon stick, skim fat off and pour broth over the roast and serve.
