Beef roast is a favorite at home. We make 3 to 4 different varieties of the same. Will share all versions here. This is a quick easy and delicious version that I make often. Fried potatoes compliments the beef roast very well. This beef roast taste great as filling for sandwiches too. You can make chilli fry and beef chilli with this as well.
