Her well-seasoned beef roast is so tender and juicy, Cynthia Gessner never has leftovers when she serves it. "My husband and our four boys, ages 5 to 20, clean their plates...down to the tiny diced vegetables," she notes from her home in Radway Alberta. "Try serving this with a side of sweet-and-sour cabbage."

"Delicious! Great with mashed potatoes. Fancy enough for company, too. Used a bit more than 1 tsp oil.
