This is a fantastic meal that you can prepare in advance. In fact, it can even taste better as a leftover dish! With just three simple ingredients, the results are magical. Could this become a new household favourite?
1 large can of whole tomatoes
1-1.5 kg boneless beef chuck roast, tied with a string
1 head of garlic, separated into cloves, left unpeeled
Preheat oven to 150 degrees C
Coarsely chop tomatoes with their juice in a food processor.
Place roast in a casserole dish with a lid (a tight fit is okay since it will shrink).
Pour tomatoes over the roast and scatter garlic around it. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
Braise in the middle of the oven, covered, until tender (approximately 3 to 4 hours).
Cut roast into thick slices and serve with sauce (garlic squeezed from its peels). We also recommend pairing it with orzo, mashed potatoes or crusty bread.
