“A wonderfully tender and tasty roast with all the fixings. This method of cooking came from a great butcher shop in Green Forest. This is a great roast to have on a Sunday after church. You get home, and voila! the roast is ready. Serve with some nice crusty bread and you are in comfort food heaven.”
