Beef Roast - Recipe

Mmm... roast beef
You can never, ever go wrong making a roast for dinner.
I found a roast beef recipe two weeks ago and just had to try it.
Normally I just place it in my Nesco roaster with a bit of garlic, pepper and perhaps yellow mustard over top. This recipe however used tomatoes and onion soup and it had to be made.
The end result was one wonderful, flavorful mouthwatering beef roast.
Do you see it up there?!
Topped with that mouth watering gravy...mmmm...gravy.
This is really one recipe you will want to try and make again & again.
original recipe was called Family Favorite Beef Roast
