Because I am usually only cooking for the two of us, I don’t make beef roast all that often. But every now and then, a beef roast will come into the cooking rotation. And I am always glad when they do. And I am always looking for tasty ways to prepare them too. If found a delicious recipe that only required a few basic ingredients and a few hours to marinate. This is one of the recipes that the longer all the flavors get to combine with each other, the better it will be. An overnighter would be perfect, but if you don’t have all night to let it rest, let it rest for at least 3-4 hours before cooking.
I marinated the beef roast with tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, onions and garlic. YUM! You can’t go wrong with any of those flavors, and the roast came out so flavorful and so tender. It was almost tender enough to cut with just a fork.
Beef Roast with a Tomato Balsamic Vinegar Marinade
2 1/2-3 lb beef roast
2 TBSP garlic
1 cup balsamic vinegar
2 TBSP fresh rosemary, chopped fine
2 onions chopped
3-4 tomatoes, medium dice
salt & pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the roast. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours. Overnight is best though.
When you are ready to cook the meat, preheat the oven to 350* F or about 180* C. Cover the meat with aluminum foil and place it in the oven. Let it roast for 3-31/2 hours, or until it is tender and the juices are clear.
Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest for about 5-10 minutes before slicing. Top with some of the sauce and serve it up. The meat will just melt in your mouth. You’re going to love it. I promise you.
I served it with some roasted Brussels sprouts and pumpkin fries with a spicy honey mustard sauce and a velvety red on the side. Ah! Perfection on a plate.
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
