    Adria82's Note:

    My husband's grandfather was famous for this easy and delicious top round beef roast. Prep is quick, easy, and calls for less than 5 ingredients (not counting the beef, of course). The pan drippings make an out of this world gravy when whisked with a bit of flour. This is best served with mashed potatoes and oven roasted asparagus or broccoli (place veggies on jelly roll pan, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper, roast at 400F for about 20 minutes while the beef rests and you prepare the gravy). Please post pictures and ENJOY!

      This was fabulous, Adria82. The little bit of kick from the mustard really added a nice touch to the roast as well as the gravy. We really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I'll definitely make this again. Made for Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef.

      My DD's 24th Bday was yesterday and for her dinner, she requested roast beef, mashed potatoes/gravy and corn and of course her favorite cake. We had this with your Mascarpone/chive potatoes for a wonderful meal. This is similar to the way I make my normal roast beef, but I use garlic instead of onion and don't use the mustard, which did add a tang. I really enjoyed the added onion flavor to the gravy, but DD stated she preferred my normal way but this was still very good. Sometimes I think we all tend to like what we are used to, as I thought this was very nice. Thank you for all 3 of your recipes that I enjoyed trying during the Pick A Chef Event for Fall 2011.
