Very nice roast. I did cut back on the tomato paste since I am not overly fond of it. Next time I will add the veggies after an hour of meat roasting . I ended up taking them about early since they were on the verge of being over cooked. Made for PAC Fall 2009

This was just awsome. So flavorful. I made a non alcoholic version using cranberry juice instead of red wine. Wonderful.
