Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large pan that will hold all the ingerdients .Add in the onions and saute until slightly brown .Add in tomatoes and saute until tomatoes start to soften.
Add the beef along with the marinade into the pan and cover and cook until the beef piece is almost cooked through .
Take the meat out , reserve the gravy and place beef on a plate or cutting board and slice into 3/4 inch thick lsices.
Heat remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the beef slices and keep aside.
You can saute some vegetables to go with teh beef Roast in this same oil .I have fried semi cooked Potato slices ,Slit marinated Green Chillies and Tomatoes .
Into the remaining oil add the gravy and simmer until it turns dark brown and oil starts to separate from the gravy.
Add the fried beef slices into the simmering gravy and warm thoroughly.
Serve garnished with sauteed vegetables.

Note :If the beef is tough and takes a long time to cook ,you can do the saute process in a pressure cooker and then add the meat and pressure cook for 1 whistle
