A Perfect French Roast

My friend was visiting from Baltimore for Shabbos when I made this roast.  She asked me for the recipe and I hold her to check Kosherstreet.  Here it is:

The secret is that it uses two different types of heat ( on the stove top and then in the oven.) which make it the softest meat around.

1 large onion chopped

4 cloves of garlic minced

2 tsp.oil

1 4 once can of tomato sauce

2-4 pound brisket or french roast

1 cup (cooking) red wine

1 tbsp sea salt or Kosher salt

Saute onion when translucent add garlic.  Put the roast on top of the garlic and onions- brown both sides.   Now, add all the other ingredients  and cook on the stove top for about an 1 hour.  Then pour the entire mixture into a 9- 13 and cover tightly with a piece of aluminum foil.  Cook at 275 for 3 hours.

    I know this recipe was posted last year, but I just found it! I used it for Rosh Hashana and it was a big hit! My friend and I were debating the amount of tomato sauce it would need and oil, etc. because it isn’t so clear. Would it be possible for the author to repost it with very clear instructions and the correct order? (Sautee onions then add garlic then rest of the ingredients- so oil goes after? What do u fry the onions with? Very unclear)
    Thanks in advance

    This was just incredible. I used tomato paste and water…. cheap wine…

    That: half on stove-top, and half in oven must be the secred… or the cut of beef.

    Thank you.

    It sounds as if it will be quite well done and soft. Can you suggest a time/temp so that the meat is closer to medium or medium-well?
