28 ozs. can of whole tomatoes, squished into pieces

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 200. Pat the roast dry and rub with cumin, garlic salt and pepper. Heat saute pan with oil until very hot. Sear the roast on all sides until brown. Remove from pan and de-glaze pan with balsamic vinegar. Let vinegar reduce in half, then add all the vegetables except tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, beef broth, thyme, and bay leaves. Cook until liquid is reduced by half.
Meanwhile tear off 3 long sheets of foil (at least 2 feet in length each). Place first sheet of foil in a large bowl or in sink. Place second sheet cross-wise over that and continue the same with the third. Put half of the vegetable mixture in the foil. Put roast on top and then pour over remaining vegetable mixture. Wrap tightly with the all the layers of foil. Place on a baking sheet in case of spillage, and bake in oven for at least 4 hours. Let rest on stove for 1/2 hour before serving.
Gravy: Pierce the foil on the bottom and drain the broth and juices into a saute pan. Make a slurry with 1/3 c. water or broth and 2 T. of cornstarch. Wisk into liquid on stove and simmer for 3 minutes or until thick and bubbly.
