A very simple topside roast with slivers of garlic inserted. You can use the leftovers in sandwiches - they are great with mustard.
Used different ingredients. I've been making roast like this for as long as I've been cooking. For the last few years though, I have been adding some worstershire sauce over the whole roast then put the pepper and kosher salt over the whole roast and bake as directed. I find the worster. sauce gives it a really nice flavour and seems to make it even more tender. I also do this method with Prime Rib. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This was really good! Everyone loved it. I used whole cloves of garlic and a lot more pepper than 1 tsp I also rubbed the pepper into the meat instead of just sprinkling it on. I also seared the meat on all sides (use a pan that can go from stove top to oven). I put large pieces of carrots, potatoes, onions around the roast when I lowered the tempature. They were so good and the drippings made a really tasty gravy! Thanks! - 29 Sep 2008
