Recipe by: Frankie


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.

7. Uncover the pan and remove beef to a serving plate. Turn the heat up to medium-high and cook the sauce about 10 more minutes or until sauce has reduced to desired consistency.

8. Ladle sauce over the beef and serve.


Goes great with pasta, potatoes, or just some nice crusty Italian bread
