- Ready In:
- 3hrs 20mins
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a dutch oven or deep casserole that can be placed on the stove burner.
- Salt and pepper the beef to your taste.
- Brown the beef with the onions until well browned on all sides. Remove the beef and onions and drain on paper towels. Drain the oil from the pan, then return the roast and onions.
- In a small microwaveable bowl, mix together the peanut butter, tomato paste, and water. Microwave on HIGH for about 1-2 minutes, until barely hot. Stir to make a smooth sauce (don't worry if it isn't completely smooth).
- Pour the peanut butter sauce over the roast in the casserole, then add the seasonings.
- Bake the roast in the oven for approximately 3--3 1/2 hours, or until tender.
- If the sauce lookes oily, skim off the fat, then serve with the sliced roast.

Oh MAN was this good. I found this recipe accidently and it captivated me so much that I HAD to try it. This was incredibly delicious! My beef accidently came out well done, I like mine medium rare, but the sauce was sooo good that it barely mattered. I plan on using the sauce to try with another cut of meat in the future. So good! It paired well with my sides, which were plain white rice and honey rosemary glazed carrots.

I live in a small (but growing to be very large) town in Oklahoma. I am currently a student, studying library science. I like to cook and eat, play the piano and violin, and train and play with my two dogs. I don't have a single favorite cookbook, but of the ones I use, I like BHG the most. Their recipes are usually very good. I would say my passion is learning new things--and traveling to new places. I also enjoy writing fiction. Some of my pet peeves are: 99% of the drivers in Oklahoma; people who don't take good care of their pets; people with NO TASTE; intellectual psychobabble nonsense; boring people; the list goes on forever!
