  • 2 onions, sliced

  • 2 Tbsp. oil

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 cup tomato soup

  • 1 Tbsp. Vegemite

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped

  • 2 cups diced carrots


  • 1.

    You will need: a heavy oven-proof pot, like a Dutch oven, with a lid

  • 2.

    (If you don't have a Dutch oven, do the first step in a skillet, then transfer the meat and onions to a covered casserole dish.)

  • 3.

    Place the flour on a plate. Roll the roast in the flour and salt and pepper it liberally.

  • 4.

    Place the oil in the bottom of the Dutch oven. Heat over medium heat. Add onions.

  • 5.

    Once onions are softened slightly, move them to one side to make room for the roast. Brown it on all sides, about 2-3 min. per side.

  • 6.

    Preheat oven to 180°C.

  • 7.

    Redistribute the ingredients so that the onions cover the bottom with the browned roast resting on top.

  • 8.

    Pour in tomato soup. Stir in Vegemite. Drop in two cloves garlic.

  • 9.

    Chop tomatoes and add to pot.

  • 10.

    Bake in oven at 180°C for 3 hours total.

    If you're adding potatoes: add them 1 hour before serving.
