My nephew is an avid hunter and makes an effort to share his bounty with family members. I like the combination of seasoned vegetables and lean meat in this recipe, and my wife likes how the seasonings complement the meat. I serve the roast with a garden salad and crusty multigrain bread.—Malcolm Cieszko, Washington, North Carolina
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 boneless beef chuck or venison roast (3 to 3-1/2 pounds), trimmed
