Bavarian Beef Roast

 Bavarian Beef Roast
Her well-seasoned beef roast is so tender and juicy, Cynthia Gessner never has leftovers when she serves it. "My husband and our four boys, ages 5 to 20, clean their plates...down to the tiny diced vegetables," she notes from her home in Radway Alberta. "Try serving this with a side of sweet-and-sour cabbage."
