Although spring is right around the corner, we’re still fighting this damn winter weather. So now’s the time to sneak in one last comfy, hearty meal before we finally move on to some fresh produce. This recipe is perfect for those days you have countless errands and no time to think about cooking. Thanks to Mama Z for giving us this recipe!
- 1 three pound roast beef (will feed roughly four people)
Gravy (or you can check out our Pantry Gravy recipe. It’s just as easy.)
- 1 packet of McCormick onion mix
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup flour
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. Place the roast beef on a roasting pan or a pan with high sides and stick in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn off the oven and keep it closed for another 3 hours. The beef will cook slowly while you’re out doing your thing. When you’re ready to eat, heat the water and onion mix in a medium sauce pan. Stir in the flour to thicken it up. Thinly slice the roast beef and either plate it and pour on the gravy, or make an open faced roast beef sandwich by putting it on a piece of Italian bread. The best part is, you may even have some leftover cold cuts for later in the week.
Happy Eating, XO.
