How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350.
- Pat the beef dry with paper towels.
- Sprinkle the beef generously with salt and pepper.
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy 6-quart roasting pan over medium-high heat.
- Add the beef and cook until brown on all sides, about 15 minutes total.
- Transfer the beef to a bowl.
- Add remaining tablespoon oil to the pan, add the onions and saute until tender, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pot, about 5 minutes.

- Stir in the broth and mushrooms.

- Braise until the beef is fork-tender, turning the beef over halfway through cooking, about 3 hours.
- Transfer the beef to a cutting board. Tent the beef with foil and let stand 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, spoon any excess fat off the top of the pan juices.
- Transfer the pan juices and vegetables to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Combine the sauce and rosemary sprig in heavy medium saucepan.
- Bring to a boil.
- Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.
- Cut the beef across the grain into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
- Arrange the sliced beef on a platter and garnish with rosemary.
- Spoon the sauce over and serve, passing the remaining sauce in a sauce boat.
