1 beef chuck pot roast, cut into serving-sized pieces (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons Butter
8 ounces small shallot, peeled
1 cup Swanson® Beef Broth or Swanson® Beef Stock
2 medium tomatoes, chopped (about 2 cups)

5 ounces mushroom, cut into quarters (about 2 cups)
1 lemon
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley




Coat the beef with the flour.
Heat the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until it's well browned on all sides. Remove the beef from the skillet. Pour off any fat.
Add the shallots to the skillet. Cook for 10 minutes or until they're tender. Stir in the broth, tomatoes, vinegar and brown sugar and heat to a boil. Return the beef to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Add the carrots and mushrooms to the skillet and cook for 30 minutes or until the beef is fork-tender and the vegetables are tender. Remove the beef and vegetables from the skillet. Cover and keep warm.
Increase the heat to high. Cook for 10 minutes or until the broth mixture is thickened. Return the beef and vegetables to the skillet. Season as desired. Grate 2 tablespoons zest from the lemon. Sprinkle the beef mixture with the parsley and lemon zest.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with wheat dinner rolls.
