~ 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! :)

  1. Cut slits in random places on each roast, insert 4 - 5 cloves in each roast. Salt & pepper both sides. Sprinkle each side with flour and pat into the meat with your hands.
  2. In my iron skillet I heat a few tablespoons oil until hot. Carefully brown each side of meat.
  3. In a medium roaster, I use my deep clay roaster...evenly spread onion and celery. Place browned meat on top. Sprinkle with thyme and bay leaves.
  4. While skillet is still hot, deglaze with 1/4 cup wine, scraping any bits off bottom of pan and pour over meat.
  5. In a bowl, whisk together, broth, remaining wine, soup and tomato paste.
  6. Pour over meat. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 1 hour. I then cover and continue baking until melt In your mouth tender.
  7. The broth mixture makes a wonderful gravy to serve with creamy mashed potatoes.
