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!"
A co-worker shared this restaurant recipe with me when I lived in Minneapolis in the 1970s. The marinade tenderizes the meat, and the drippings make a savory sauce to accompany the moist beef slices.

This spectacular roast is the star of any special meal my wife, Linda, and I host. A simple dry rub delicately seasons the tender juicy meat. When we set this entree in front of guests, they rave about it.

This recipe was given to me by my mother's friend when I was a newlywed. I was in a panic over what to serve to guests, and she suggested this. It was a big hit, and I've continued serving it for the past 40 years.
My friends rave about the different taste the cranberry sauce gives to this roast, and I couldn't agree more. I've made the sauce ahead of time and frozen it, which saves preparation time on a busy schedule.
Daddy was a close friend of the local butcher, Mr. Mason, who always saved the preferred cut for his best customer! To please Daddy, that roast had to be big enough so he could count on leftovers for cold beef sandwiches the following week. —Mary Lewis, Memphis, Tennessee
