Very nice and simple roast recipe, the flavor on the crust was so good - I've never thought of using mayonnaise before but this came out full of flavor, even the veggies were good. I was a little worried about baking on the rack as afraid it would be dry, so did add about a half a cup of water to the bottom before putting in the oven. The end result was a medium rare roast, with crispy potatoes and nicely spiced vegies. Made for a very nice dinner. Made for Spring PAC 2014
