  1. Heat the oil in a heavy, cast iron pot over medium heat. Dredge the roast in the flour, shake off the excess, and brown in the hot oil on all sides. Stir in the onions, carrots, celery, garlic, and allspice; cook till lightly browned. Pour in the red wine and bring to a simmer before pouring in the beef broth. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until the beef is tender, about 2 to 3 hours.
  2. When the meat has finished cooking, remove to a cutting board, and allow to rest for 10 minutes. While beef is resting, thicken the cooking liquid with the cornstarch. Slice the beef and serve with the gravy.

The best pot roast I've ever made! I used red potatoes instead of celery and doubled the carrots (and added them during the last 45 minutes). The suggestions to season the beef before browning a...

Very good. Much better than the recipe I used to follow for pot roast. I add potatoes and substitute bay leaves for the allspice.

This was very good. Did not have whole allspice berries so substituted a teaspoon of ground allspice and used a red cooking wine ... very good

The meat came out tender..i used basic recipe ,but used allspice, but not the berries. I also used only one carton of beef broth
