You need only a few ingredients for this tangy roast that feeds a bunch. The gravy is tasty on mashed potatoes, too. —Jeanie Beasley, Tupelo, Mississippi

"Great easy recipe that lets the beef do the talking! The beefy flavor comes out nicely in the hearty dish. I have substituted a pack of zesty italian salad dressing for the flavor also. Gives it just a little more zing. Great over any pasta or smashed potatoes."

"I made this last night and it was fantastic! I tend to avoid recipes that call for meat and tomatoes unless it is a soup recipe. So glad I didn't pass this one up! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It will certainly be a family favorite in our house!"
