Ingredients :

2 tbsp cooking oil

4lb rump roast of beef

1 medium onion, halved

1 clove garlic, crushed (optional)

1/4 cup boiling water

salt and pepper

3 tbsp fat

3 tbsp flour

2 cups liquid (cooking liquid plus water)

Method :

Heat oil in large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven. Add roast and brown very well on all sides over moderately high heat (this may take as long as 20 minutes). Add onion, garlic and boiling water. Sprinkle meat generously with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until meat is very tender, about 3 hours. Lift out meat. Drain all fat and liquid from the pan. Return meat to pan and brown again until quite dark on the outside. Put meat on a hot platter and keep hot.

Skim fat off drippings form pan or chill drippings quickly by setting in ice water and lift off fat. Return 3 tbsp (45ml) of this fat to the pan. Sprinkle in flour and let bubble up. Measure liquid left from cooking after fat was removed and add boiling water to make 2 cups (500ml) if necessary. Remove pan from heat and add liquid all at once, stirring to blend well. Return to moderate heat and cook until thick and smooth, stirring constantly. Taste and season if necessary. Serve with toast.
