Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season the beef roast with salt, oregano, pepper, paprika, and cayenne, rubbing all over the exterior. Using a large pan, add a few dribbles of grapeseed oil. Turn the heat up on the pan to medium/high and sear the roast on all sides. Once done, place the roast in a shallow roasting pan. Combine the tomatoes, garlic, thyme and olive oil and pour over roast, scattering around bottom of the pan. Place roasting pan in preheated oven, and roast uncovered for about an hour. If you like it cooked a bit more well, add about 20 more minutes roasting time. While roast is cooking, combine beef broth and port wine in pan that you seared the meat in. Bring to a boil, then cook over high heat until the liquid is reduced by half - usually about 30 minutes. Whisk in tomato sauce and set aside. Remove beef roast from oven, let rest for at least 10 minutes. Don’t slice in until ready to serve.
