1 tb Brown Sugar; firmly packed

Original recipe makes 1 Servings



In a large heavy flameproof casserole heat the oil over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it brown the beef, patted dry and seasoned with salt and pepper, on all sides. Transfer the beef to a plate, add the onions and the garlic to the casserole, and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring, until the onions are golden. Stir in the tomatoes, the vinegar, the brown sugar, the bay leaf, and the water, bring the mixture to a boil, and add the beef. Braise the beef, covered, in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour, add the carrots, and braise the mixture, covered, for 30 minutes. Add the potatoes, drained if necessary, and braise the mixture, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the beef and the vegetables are tender. The pot roast may be prepared up to this point 2 days in advance, cooled, uncovered, and chilled, covered. Discard any solidified fat before reheating the pot roast. Transfer the beef with slotted spoons to a cutting board and let it stand for 10 minutes. Skim the fat from the top of the cooking mixture and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir the cornstarch mixture and add enough of it to the boiling cooking mixture, stirring, to thicken the gravy to the desired consistency. Simmer the gravy mixture, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes, season it with salt and pepper, and discard the bay leaf. Slice two thirds of the beef, arrange it on a heated platter, and transfer the vegetables with one of the slotted spoons to the platter. Spoon some of the gravy over the beef and serve the rest of the remaining gravy on the side. Garnish the beef with the parsley.
