I like serving popovers or yorkshire pudding with a beef roast..along with small potatoes and gravy..this is a great meal to serve on special family occasions and too bad there are only 2 ends of roast slathered with the garlic rub. We should draw straws as to who gets them.

How To Make

    Pre heat oven at 350F..mix together the mustard and mashed garlic..rub it on both ends and top of roast.mix together the onion soup and water and pour into roasting pan add the roast and bake for 2 hours or meat thermometer reads 170F the roast will be pink inside {just cut a piece of meat and check if done enough} if too rare roast a little longer. when roast is done remove to platter and cover with foil til ready to serve..pore water into small pot and heat the broth and thicken with flour or cornstarch..most of the time I add 2 c f button mushrooms and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes..keep warm until ready to serve or cover and reheat when ready to eat.

    I would sometimes serve the little potatoes..cook til just fork tender,,drain place into pie plate or baking pan and pour 1 or 2 table spoons olive or canola oil mix well to coat and bake at the same time the yorkshire pudding is baking until light brown and will receive many compliments from your guests YUMMY..
