what’s in it

the roast…

1 5-6 pound boneless chuck or rump roast

sea salt

1/2 tablespoon coarsely ground black peppercorns

1/2 tablespoon coarsely ground white peppercorns

1/2 tablespoon corriander

1/2 tablespoon cumin

1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

1/4 cup sriracha sauce

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

canola oil for cooking

2 sliced onions

6 cloves garlic, sliced

5 slices of fresh ginger

2-3 whole roma tomatoes

1-2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 cups dry red wine

2 zucchinis, thickly cut

2 colorful bell peppers, largely diced

2 large carrots, peeled and thickly cut

1 pound whole baby bella mushrooms

the aioli… (from yummly.com)

3 egg yolks

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 sprig fresh rosemary

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

squirt of sriracha

2 cups or so vegetable oil


how it comes together

season roast with salt, mix all spices and roll the roast well in them.  roll the spiced roast in the flour.  heat a dutch oven to high.  coat with oil and sear all sides of the roast until brown and crusty.  lower heat and add onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, sugar, wine and sriracha.  cover and let simmer for 3 hours (turn it every hour, but check on it…i don’t like my roast over-done, just tender).  in a large bowl, mix the remaining vegetables with some salt & pepper.  during the last 20 minutes of roasting, add the vegetables and cover.  roast is done when it’s fork tender.  remove roast and check the veggies and sauce for seasoning.   

while roast is roasting, make the aioli that goes on top.  combine all ingredients in food processor, while machine is running, slowly pour oil in stead stream.  continue to add until it’s thick as you like it.  i don’t add both cups of oil…like my aioli a little thinner.

the roast recipe is doctored from a ming tsai recipe on foodnetwork.com.  i added the aioli and mustard, and changed the veggie timing because i hate mushy veggies.  enjoy this one…i certainly did!
