This is my mom's simple, but really flavorful "comfort food" roast with gravy. The list of steps is long, but the recipe is not difficult at all. I've simply been careful to be as detailed as possible since, in this case, technique is very important. Without fail, when Mom would ask me what I wanted for my birthday dinner and I invariably answered "your beef roast with that yummy gravy!", she'd roll her eyes and say, "you want THAT for your BIRTHDAY?" For her, it was a run of the mill roast. For me, it was heaven! Since her death in 2003, I'd been looking everywhere for the scrap of paper I'd written the recipe down on years ago, but didn't find it until this week. I'm thrilled and was actually giggling throughout dinner the other night when I realized I finally had gotten the flavor down exactly as she used to make it. It was one of my most joyful meals growing up and now I can have it whenever I want. :D Thanks, Mom!
