Nutritional Facts

5 ounces cooked beef with 2 tablespoons sauce equals 444 calories, 26 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 99 mg cholesterol, 275 mg sodium, 12 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 32 g protein.

Directions

  1. Trim fat from roast. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, peppercorns, garlic and salt. Rub over meat. Place in a shallow roasting pan.

"It was great to find a flavorful low sodium option for my father in law. I even used a little less salt than it calls for. I made this to replace the high sodium lunch meat he has for lunch."
