junio 23, 2015

This recipe takes advantage of roasting both the vegetables and the beef at the same time. Plus with leftovers, try making a quick salad or sandwich like the Mediterranean Wraps. “What we all liked about the end product was the evenness of the medium doneness – throughout like a hotel roast. The roast was very moist and flavourful – not at all dry Outside Round!” —Reader Comment
