Recipe by ChrisMc

I found this on a web site for Irish recipes - it's a little different from the traditional roast beef and gravy.

Good recipe! I used top sirloin, as opposed sirloin tip, and Cdn Beef, as opposed Irish Beef, which would bring it down a lot, as Irish Beef is aged a lot longer. I used Jameson's Irish Whiskey, and when I do this again, will shift to Cognac, as mixing grain and grape sort of goes against my rules. Sadly, I used a local red wine, I'll know better next time and step that up to where it should have been. Gravy goes well with the meat, but less so with potato's (remember I "flawed" the basic recipe, so if you do it as puiblished you will certainly garner better results, and the meat results were very good.
