Today I have an easy recipe for your meal planning! I tried this along with a few other new recipes for my Meal Plan Monday line up. What is not to love about a meal you can prep and pop into the oven then go back to doing other things? I love cooking in the oven during fall and winter, it makes things run smoother during the week.You are bound to love cooking up this Herb Roast Beef Recipe pair it with your favorite veggies and potatoes.
Today’s meal is well balanced and easy to prepare. If you have a smaller family size at home you might have left overs.This is perfect lunch the next day or for making another dish with the left over meat. Like a soup or chili. Honestly, I felt a little nostalgic when I was cooking this recipe. It reminded me of my grandma.
“This is a hearty meal fit for the working men,” as my grandma used to say. During her lifetime the farm men came into eat the bigger meals at lunch and it’s was called dinner. She lived on a cotton farm in Texas. Often a Sunday dinners for us would consist of a meal something similar to this as I was growing up.
Here’s how easy it is to make the Herb Roast Beef Recipe;
Gather up your herbs, Dijon mustard, garlic and lemon. A handy cutting board and sharp knife.
Next you just chop, mix and add the ingredients into a mixing cup. With the exception of the fresh Rosemary. Don’t worry about the mess a quick few wipes when your roast is popped in the oven and no one will know you’ve been cooking with the exception of that delicious aroma.
Spray pan with non stick food spray. Next fat side up pour all the mix onto the roast beef and add your fresh rosemary about 2 sprigs. Add washed, cut potatoes and quartered onion around the side of the pan.
Cook about 20 minutes per pound. Let the meat rest 10-15 minutes then slice it up. We served ours with fresh cooked broccoli.
I almost had a flash back to some 1950’s image of a lady in a frilly apron handing off the plate to the Mr. to serve. lol The reality is I handed it off so I could take a few photos to share with you. Then we rushed to the table to eat while it was still warm.
