Caraway Beef Roast Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: It seems there aren't many beef roasts that are both extra-special and extra-easy. This one is, though. There have been many Sundays when I've put it in the oven as we're walking out the door to go to church and had no trouble getting it on the table right around noon. Over the years, many men have requested that I copy the recipe for their wives. "I love the gravy!" they'll say. My husband's a farmer, and we have five children - all of them now grown. -Beverly Swanson, Red Oak, Iowa

My husband says it is the best roast I have cooked. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I have passed it on to family and friends.

MY REVIEW

My husband says it's the best roast beef I've ever made. To be honest, I haven't made many, but it was easy and tasty and the gravy was very good. I will definately make again.
