Round roast, about 1 1/2 pounds
3 TBSP olive oil
2 medium garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper


1. Cut off any excess fat from the roast then cut, against the grain, into slices about 1/2 inch thick.

2. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.

3. Add the garlic to the oil and cook while stirring until fragrant, about 5 seconds.

4. Carefully pour in the crushed tomatoes then stir in the oregano, basil, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper.

5. Lay the beef slices in a single layer into the pan and cover in the tomato sauce.

6. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 1 hour or until beef is tender.
