Hello everyone, This isn't an every day Roast and vegetables. Cooking the roast in this way hold the juices in and its nice and tender. The sweet potatoes make a nice change of paste. If you would rather have russets, use Colby cheese instead. You can also use ham slices, chopped and saute' for about 2 or 3 minutes longer. I hope you enjoy this meal as much as we do.

Rub the pepper evenly over the beef, pressing gently so that pepper clings to the beef. Place the herbs in a large measuring cup and chop them up with kitchen shears. Using a sheet of waxed paper, mix the fresh and the dried herbs, spreading them out on the waxed paper. Roll the roast in herb mixture to completely coat.
