- beef bouillon, cubes

Add roast and onion to oil. Brown roast on all sides.
Simmer on low for 3-4 hours or longer.
Taste liquid. If flavor tastes a little weak, crush 5th bullion cube and add to liquid.
Make a slurry by placing corn starch in small bowl and dissolving in COLD water (corn starch will not dissolve in hot water).
Bring liquid to a boil and add slurry a little at a time until disired thickness is achieved.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
This gravy is excellent on mashed potatoes.
