Directions:
In a Pyrex pitcher, combine wine, tomato paste, bay leaves, thyme, rosemary and bouillon and blend well, set aside.

Brown the roast on all sides, remove and set aside. Brown the onions in the same oil, remove, and reserve. Add flour to the oil and cook until brown and well blended. Add wine mixture, cook and stir until well blended.

Return roast and onions to pot and salt and pepper to taste. You might need to add more wine and bouillon to make sure it comes to just below the roast. Cover and place in 350 degree oven for 3 hours.

Use a deep red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon. If you have a crock pot put all the browned ingredients in it and cook on slow for 8 hours - simply delicious!
