How do I make it ?
Blend first 7 ingredients in blender until smooth. Pour 1-1/2 cups tomato juice mixture over roast in shallow dish. Turn to evenly coat roast with tomato juice mixture. Refrigerate 4 hours to marinate, turning roast occasionally. Remove roast from marinade; discard marinade. Pat roast dry with paper towel.

Pour remaining tomato juice mixture into Dutch oven. Bring to boil, stirring constantly to scrape browned bits from bottom of pan. Return roast to pan; cover.
Bake 1 hour. Meanwhile, peel potatoes and parsnips. Cut potatoes, parsnips and sweet pepper into 1-inch pieces.
Remove roast from oven. Turn roast. Add potatoes and parsnips to pan.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
For a thicker sauce, remove cooked roast and vegetables from pan; cover to keep warm. Pour sauce from bottom of pan through strainer into medium saucepan; discard strained solids. Bring sauce to boil, stirring frequently. Whisk 2 Tbsp. each cornstarch and water until blended. Gradually add to boiling sauce, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 min. or until thickened. Slice roast. Serve with vegetables and thickened sauce.
