Every time I fix this recipe for friends, it's asked for - and usually by the husbands! As a new mom (Mike and I are the parents of a 9-month-old son) who works full-time, I also like how easy it is to prepare. It's one of our favorites. Some people I've shared the recipe with have used a beef brisket in place of the regular roast. For a bit different taste, I at times add red wine vinegar. My mom started me cooking young. I made my first from-scratch Thanksgiving dinner at 13. After that, I figured I could tackle about any cooking!

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
My family loves garlic, the more the better. So, one day, I came up with this recipe...yum, yum good! Now, my family requests my mouthwatering roast for Sunday dinner every other week.—Rhonda Hampton, Cookeville, Tennessee
This delicious beef makes great sandwiches for a picnic, party or camping trip. The meat has a tempting from-scratch flavor that beats deli cold cuts. My family has savored these sandwiches for many years.
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.

The addition of hot sauce zips up this cut of meat. It takes me back to spicy dinners I enjoyed as a child in the Southwest. I like to use the leftovers in different dishes-including barbecued beef sandwiches, quesadillas and burritos. —Carol Stevens, Basye, Virginia
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.
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!"
