Let me tell you about my friend, Robyn. She’s gorgeous, brilliant, talented, kind, warm-hearted, and has a seriously adorable family. Robyn is good people, people. All that’s impressive enough, right? Well, the woman can cook, too. She posted the most incredible looking Balsamic Roast Beef recipe a few of weeks ago and I about fell out of my chair it sounded so good.
In fact, her recipe is on that short list of ones that have sounded so darned good that I had to make it the minute I read it. Literally. As in, I stood up, unplugged my laptop and moved to the kitchen to begin making it AS I was reading it. I made that roast twice in one week.
…Then the third time I started making it (Yes, three time in two weeks. What?!? Me? Obsess much?) I realized I was out of a couple of ingredients. I preserved Robyn‘s method and played around with the stuff I always have handy. In this house, that usually means going Asian directions with recipes. The result was fah-hah-haaabulous.
It was so delicious I stood there pulling piece after piece off of the fall-apart tender beef dunking it into the pan juices and slurping it up. I dare not admit how much of it I consumed. I’ll just say that my husband came in the room to find out from whence the delectable aroma was coming and said, “Oh, I guess it was a small-ish roast?”
It was four pounds.
Yeah, so. The point is that it’s not just good, it’s great. If you have more willpower than I do, or start with a larger roast than I did, leftovers store and freeze, and reheat beautifully.
