This roast is great holiday fare, with incredible seasoning. But it's too good to save just for special occasions. It makes a warm, satisfying supper anytime. I'll often serve it with potato pancakes, applesauce and carrots. -Grace Yaskovic, Branchville, New Jersey

"The roast appeared to be drying out, so I put foil over it for the last hour. Moist and delicious!"
