This is soooo good. It is one of our family favorites. We love to serve it with rice (as suggested in the cookbook) and a vegetable.

Ingredients

3-4 lb
rolled rump roast (we've used other roasts as well)
2 Tbsp
cooking oil
1/4 c
flour
1 c
onion, chopped
2 clove
garlic, minced
1 tsp
beef boullion (or 1 cube smashed)
1 tsp

8 oz

1/2 c
water
for the gravy:
1/4 c

Step-By-Step

1Coat roast on all sides with 1/4 c flour. Brown all sides in a Dutch oven or heavy pan in hot oil.
2Add onions, garlic, beef bullion granules, celery seed, cumin, salt, pepper, tomato sauce and 1/2 c water.
3Cove with a tight-fitting lid. Cook over low heat until tender 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Remove meat; keep warm.
4Measure pan juices; add water if necessary, to make 2 1/2 cups (we just eyeball this part. Those juices re HOT.)
