Method

In a 5-quart heavy pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking.

Brown roast on all sides.

Transfer meat to a plate and pour off all but a tablespoon of fat.

Return pot to heat and add onion, carrots, bell pepper and mushrooms.

Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in tomatoes, oyster sauce, red chile flakes and Chinese five-spice powder.

Bring mixture to a boil.

Add meat and simmer, covered, turning roast over halfway through cooking time, until meat is tender, about 3 hours.

Let meat rest about 10 minutes before slicing.

Cut across the grain into 1/2-inch-thick slices and arrange on a platter.

Spoon vegetables and sauce over meat and garnish with cilantro and toasted sesame seeds.
