In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil and sear the roast on all sides. Add the onions, garlic and tomato paste and cook until slightly colored. Add the vegetable broth, cream of celery soup, apple cider vinegar, a few dashes of worsheshire sauce, thyme and bay leaves. Bring the liquid to a simmer, cover, and place in the oven.

Roast for 1 1/2 hours and then add the carrots and potatoes. Continue to cook for 1 more hour. Transfer the roast to a cutting board and let rest for 10-15 minutes covered. Slice and place on a serving platter. Skim the fat off the braising liquid and serve with the roast. (if you like, you may thicken the gravy up a bit with flour). Add vegetables to the platter. Garnish with parsley.
