Dip the round in olive oil and brown it on all sides in a casserole. Remove from the heat, and leave it to the side.
In the same casserole where you browned the meat, pour the 4 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain and add the onions and peeled, sliced carrots. Sauté them until they are browned.
Add the 1 ½ cups of red wine and the bay leaf, add the round back in and add enough water to cover the meat. Cover the casserole and when it starts to boil again, lower the heat and let it simmer for an hour and a half. Turn the round from time to time so it cooks through on all sides.
Set the round aside on a separate plate, and in a bowl, add the sauce from the vegetables and blend with a hand-held blender until it reduces.
To serve, cut it into thin slices and pour the sauce over the meat.
