Reviews for Red-Eye Beef Roast
"Oh my gosh!! This was the best tasting roast I have ever made in my years of cooking. Not dry and had the best flavor. I followed the recipe to the t and put it in the crockpot instead of oven and this turned out wonderful. Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing! I love Country Woman magazine. :O)"
"Love the ZING of the flavor! Especially the gravy! Made it Christmas for the first time (change of plans & I had to cook -no turkey on hand). The in-laws are still raving about it."
