Recipe by MamaDonna

On a the SB diet, phase 3, you try to create meals that are big on flavor. My hubby (not a fan of crockery cooking) told me I needed to write this one down before I forgot how I did it!

This was a lovely unique way of cooking a roast. Perfect for warm weather as it is lighter than a roast with potatoes and thick gravy. I sliced the beef and poured some of the juices over. Very, very tasty. The prep is quite easy and the flavor is great, can't get much better than that.
