~ Deep Flavor Roast ~

Cassie *


There's nothing better than a Sunday roast beef dinner. This beef was made with what I had on hand and was a real hit with my troops. Deep rich flavorful gravy that was oh so good served with creamy mashed potatoes.

I hope you try my recipe. It's been tested and approved by my whole family, each had seconds! :)
