    mermaidmagic's Note:

    This is a tasty roast that my husband has made for us. His original recipe is from a yellowed newspaper clipping - probably the Boston Globe.

      5 ***** and company worthy. This entree is delicious! The Dijon herb crust is to die for. I used a 2# roast but the full amount of herb crust. The timing (using a meat thermometer) is spot on. I served with Potatoes Grandmere, sauteed green beans w/ a spot of bacon grease and garlic. YUM! Thanks for posting Mermaidmagic!

      I used 2 cloves of garlic, but that was the only thing I did different from the recipe. This was fabulous! Will definitely make again!
