Ruby-Glazed Roast Beef

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by Dancer

It's in the Bag! For an easy way to prepare roasts that simplifies preparation and clean-up, try the special cellophane-like oven-safe "bags" that have been on the market for years. The beef remains moist without basting and your oven remains splatter-free.

Interesting (in a good way). First time either of us had tasted a currant product. The roast had a lovely almost-hard glaze but was moist inside. God bless those roasting bags. Ron adored the sauce; I'm undecided.....might try just a touch of balsalmic vinegar next time. But, anything that gets Ron to hit his protein requirement has my vote. Many thanks, Dancer.
