Italian Roast Beef

This is a great, simple roast beef recipe that I came up with this past year.  You can also make it with pot roast and it turns out just as great.  I made this recipe last night for a welcome home dinner for my husband.  He was out of town all week and it coming home to raining weather here.  Thought I would make him a nice home cooked meal.  Please try this with your family....they will eat it up!
