This recipe is great because you can throw these few ingredients together before work and come home to a completed dinner your family will love. This roast is fabulous on its own. It hardly needs more than a generous side of garlic mashed potatoes and roasted root vegetables. But magic happens when you pile this roast on a tasted garlic buttered French baguette with broiled provolone cheese and horseradish sauce. Wow, that is one heck of a sandwich!
