If you're looking to serve something different for your holiday dinner or for a dinner party, give this a try. It's one of the best roast beef recipes we've tried. The meat's slathered with a spicy, sweet, and smoky rub. As it sits, the flavors permeate the meat. Putting on the grill for a bit adds to the smoky flavor and really seals the juices in. The Test Kitchen smelled heavenly while this baked. Served with the sweet potatoes and black beans, your family will love its juiciness and flavor.
