Iron Pot Beef (Beef a la mode)
Recipe By : Out of Kentucky Kitchens
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
4 pounds top round roast -- no less
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup full-bodied red wine
2 cloves garlic -- pressed
1 medium yellow onion -- sliced thin
2 bay leaves
2 allspice berries
1/2 teaspoon ground mace
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 large lemon -- sliced thin
Flour for dusting
Vegetable oil -- or fat
Water and wine mixture
4 large carrots -- slice diagonally
2 large yellow onions -- sliced
Rub meat with black pepper and place in a large plastic airtight bag
with the next 10 ingredients (through sliced lemon). Seal out air and
refrigerate no less than 24 hours, making sure marinate covers all the
meat. 2 or up to 3 days would be better, turning meat occasionally,
so marinate goes through it.
Remove meat, pat dry, dust liberally with flour and brown it in hot
oil in a large Dutch oven. Combine marinate with enough water/wine
mixture to equal 2 cups. Add carrots and onions. Cover and cook in a
low oven 250 degrees until meat is very tender or alternately, simmer
on low for 4 hours or until tender. Check liquid level from time to
time and add 4 more onions, 4 carrots and a couple of celery ribs
30-45 minutes before serving.
NOTES : Do not use a small roast. The meat is delicious sliced cold.
