Main Dish Recipe: Roast Beef Dinner

Roast beef is sort of like our Christmas/New Year ‘s equivalent to a turkey dinner. The family makes it together, it goes along with roast potatoes, horseradish and plum pudding, and it brings everyone closer. Bonus: it ‘s super easy to roast the vegetables along with the meat, so you get your protein and veggies all in one; all the flavors mingle together for a wonderful, complete meal! It doesn’t have to be made for a holiday meal, but it ‘s perfect in the wintertime when you want something a little more hearty!
