1 of our Favorite Dinners

A few years ago, I got a bit food crazy on Pinterest. I ran across SO many wonderful recipes, and of course I HAD to try them all out. One of the family’s favorites is the recipe for Balsamic Roast Beef.  I, personally don’t prepare it with the “gravy” or “dipping sauce.”  I stick to the basic recipe and turn the Roast Beef into sandwiches. I grab a pack of sweet Italian rolls fresh from the grocery bakery, and a pack of either smoked provolone slices or sliced pepper jack cheese. Add a bit of mayo, and side with a pickle spear, some chips, and some hot baked beans…Voila! Dinner is served; it’s a delicious one at that! Let me know what you think…

NOTES: If you prefer a more pronounced flavor, once the roast beef has been removed, use a fat separator on the gravy and then pour the gravy into a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the gravy has reduced by half.
