Pot Roast, Italian Style
beef chuck pot roast
In a dutch oven, or large pan with a tight-fitting cover, brown meat in fat.
Season with salt and pepper and remove from pan.
Add onion, carrots and celery; cook until vegetables are lightly browned, stirring often.
Add tomato paste, tomato sauce, wine, bouillon, sugar, basil and oregano; mix well.
Cover and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours, or until done. (Or cook in a 325 oven for same amount of time.)
Turn meat once to cook it evenly throughout.
When done, remove meat to a platter and keep warm.
If sauce is a little too thin, simmer, uncovered, until it is of desired thickness.
Taste sauce and correct seasoning, if necessary, with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile cook spaghetti and drain.
Serve sauce over spaghetti and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Slice meat and spoon a little sauce over it.
