  • 1 piece (3 to 4 pound) Beef chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat

  • Kosher Salt

  • freshly ground Black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 1 can crushed Tomato

  • 1 cup Water

  • 2 yellow Onions halved

  • 1.

    Season all sides of the beef with a fair amount of salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot that has a tight cover; heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over moderately high heat. Brown the meat on all sides, taking the time to get a nice crust on the outside. Pour in the tomatoes and the water. Scatter the vegetables and herbs around the pot roast, season with salt and pepper; and drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to low. Braise for about 3 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the pan juices, until the beef is fork tender.
