Coat roast on both sides with seasoned salt, pepper, and granulated garlic. Let stand 15 minutes. Put a thin coating of oil in hot cast iron "Dutch oven" or deep pan and sear the meat on both sides. After searing, add onions, garlic, bay leaves, bouillon cubes or beef stock, merlot wine and water to come up 1/3-1/2 way on the beef.
Cover and bake at 325°F for 1 hour.
Add potatoes, carrots, celery. Cover and bake additional 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Put meat and vegetables on warm platter. Reduce sauce on stove top for richer flavor. Pour reduced sauce on top of meat and vegetables or serve on side.
