V-Well Solutions: Christmas Roast


This is the perfect roast! Medium well all the way through with seasonal flavors crusted onto the outside of the roast. Pair that with a warm creamy dressing and you have the best meal for the holidays. The fact that it’s healthy is just a bonus.

5 pound leaner cut of beef roast (eye of round or London broil)

6-8 oz dried cherries (or prunes or pitted dates)

2 tablespoons tomato paste

Make Marinade:Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Puree until very smooth 1-3 minutes. Place roast and marinade into a large plastic bag and massage the roast until evenly coated. Marinate for 2 days.

Cook Roast: Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack onto the baking sheet. Remove the roast from the plastic bag and transfer to wire rack.
