Oven Roast Beef

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

This roast can be made in a kitchen oven or at an outdoor camp site in a dutch oven. The recipe will make a very tender roast with its own gravy. Leftovers may be kept in the gravy for several days.

You've got a winner here! Super-easy to put together, pop in the oven, go do whatever, and Voila!, supper's ready. Love the tender, tasty meat, and the gravy is so yummie. So glad you posted this nifty recipe. Many thanks, Laudee C.
