Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Notes about this recipe

    With a 2.5 lb sirloin tip braising roast staring me down in the freezer, I came here & cut the recipe in half. I made NO ingredient substitutions but after removing the falling apart chunks of meat, I pureed all of the liquid with an immersion blender which resulted in a thick, luscious sauce with some nice chunky bits. This was a delicious Sunday dinner with Ina's oven roasted carrots & Jamie Oliver's crispy/fluffy roasted potatoes on the side. A definite repeat.

    I couldn't find tomatoes in puree, so I used tomatoes in juice and added some tomato paste. Since I used canned broth, I reduced the salt by 2 tsp, which seemed just right. When pureeing the sauce, I included all the tomatoes since I prefer a smooth sauce. Baking it at 300 degrees the whole time worked fine. We enjoyed it with mashed potatoes, and turned the leftovers into pasta sauce. Fabulous!

    This is fabulous. I made it, froze it, then ovenighted it to my mom when she was sick; she defrosted it and reheated it for a group a family and they couldn't give enough raves. I sneaked a bite before I sent it and was extremely impressed. Will probably have to make this again just for me :)
