I loved this roast! So delicious....I've never used tomatoes in a roast and they really added something extra. Served with mashed potatoes as suggested. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
This was delicious. The gravy was excellent with the potatoes and the beef. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Lainey6605. Made for ZWT8 - Britain.
