Seasoned with Southwestern zest, this lean beef roast is fork-tender and gets a little kick from salsa. "My husband, Phillip, and our two young daughters raise our own cattle and hogs on a farm just outside Freeburg, Missouri," writes Cathy Sestak. "This one of our favorite ways to eat beef. Enjoy!"
