      This was simply a delicious roast! I loved the marriage of flavors in this recipe. Even before the first bite of this fork-tender beef, the aroma was so devine: bacon, onion, garlic and wine. Then after I took my first bite, the flavor only got better. We only used half the onion for personal preference and everything melded together wonderfully. Thank you, mariposa13 for posting this dish. ~Buddha
