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.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I made it tonight with a few changes and it was fantastic!!!! To reduce the fat, I rubbed the roast with salt, pepper and granulated garlic and browned it in the butter right in the roasting pan. I added the onions and set the roast on top then sprinkled with rosemary. Covered and baked as directed. When it was done, I removed the roast and tented it with foil while I made the gravy (in the roasting pan). I added 1T of flour and a handful of sliced mushrooms to the drippings and cooked to brown the flour. I added 1 c of beef broth and cooked until it was thick. DELICIOUS!!!!!

I used 1/2 the pepper, and about 1 1/2 T garlic. I cooked it about an hour and 10 minutes. The roast was moist and tender. I followed Cookin' Diva's advice about the gravy, and it turned out great. Yum. Thanks!
