A flavorful roast that is very simple to make. Be sure to use a meat thermometer and pull your roast when you hit 160 degrees. Note that there is an error in the last step regarding gravy - it says to mix 1 T. flour in water, but then later refers to Cornstarch (rather than flour). Here's how my gravy worked - I skimmed the pan drippings and ended up with 1/2 cup drippings (de-fatted). I mixed 2 T. cornstarch and 1 cup beef broth , and stirred that into the simmering drippings. It thickened nicely and made a wonderful gravy.
