This is one of those stupid easy recipes that I love for busy weeknights. Everyone has five minutes to spare to throw this meal together, and it tastes like you’ve slaved away for hours. You just can’t get any better than that, y’all.
For an easy dinner, serve the beef roast with slow cooker mashed potatoes or Spanish rice.
