Directions:
Directions:
This may be prepared in the oven or on top of the stove. I prefer oven, less chance of sauce sticking.
Trim roast of fat, salt and pepper and dust with flour. Over high heat brown roast on both sides and remove from pan. Lower heat and saute vegetables until wilted. Add tomato paste and stir, add red wine and stir. Add remaining ingredients.
Place roast in pan, the sauce should barely cover meat. If you need add more wine or tomato sauce. Cover and cook over low heat stirring occassionaly 3 hours, or bring to a simmer, cover and place iin 325 degree oven for 3 hours stirring occassionaly
Meat should be folk tender. Serve over spaghetti with green salad and french bread.

Personal Notes:
My dad and his brother had contest over who made the best daube. This was a favorite Sunday dinner for us all. The neighborhoods where we grew up are gone now. I recently traveled back to them to help my sister retrieve any belongings that may have survived Katrina. She made this dish for us at her daughters temporary "camp" in Baton Rouge. I think it's time for me to bring it back.
Daube is a French term for whole meats simmered in vegatables and wine, I think, Cissie will correct me if I'm wrong.
