  3. Add the broth, orange juice, wine, brown sugar and tomatoes to the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Return the beef to the saucepot. Cover and cook for 2 hours.
  4. Return the vegetables to the saucepot. Cover and cook for 1 hour or until the beef is fork-tender.
  5. Remove the beef to a cutting board. Let stand for 10 minutes. Serve the beef with the vegetables and sauce.
