  • In a dutch oven or other heavy 5- to 6-qt. pot, heat 1 tbsp. oil over medium heat. Brown roast on all sides, about 4 minutes per side, adding another 1/2 tbsp. oil halfway through browning.

  • Transfer roast to a plate and wipe pot clean with a paper towel. Add 1/2 tbsp. oil to pot, put roast back in pot, and roast until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 135°, about 50 minutes.

  • Transfer roast to a rimmed cutting board and tent with foil. Add remaining 1 tbsp. oil and the flour to pot and, over medium heat, whisk 1 to 2 minutes to cook flour. Whisk in tomato paste. Slowly whisk in beef broth and bring to a simmer. Cook gravy until thickened slightly, whisking frequently, 7 to 9 minutes. Season to taste with salt.

  • Slice roast thinly and serve with pan gravy.

  • *Available at Whole Foods Markets and by request from your butcher.
