This recipe is easy, lean and delicious. What's better than that? We also use leftovers for another easy weeknight meal later in the week.

I was extremely pleased with how well this turned out. My roast was 2.5 lbs and it was "just right" (about 140°) at 45 minutes. I used Lawry's Seasoning Salt. We all really enjoyed this meal, thanks!
