Sear beef. This is done to seal in juices. Bring to boil other ingredients. Add beef and simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until tender. Chopstick will pierce easily. Serve meat sliced hot or cold with sauce that it cooked in. The sauce, if refrigerated, may be used for a number of dishes. Chuck roast, brisket of beef, or rump roast may be used. Cooking times will vary with cuts of meat. Sometimes vegetables are added the last half hour or so. In this case the vegetable would be cut using the rolling diagonal method. You may use turnips, carrots, bamboo shoots, Lily flowers.
