Roast beef that's ready in just about 30 minutes – WOW! This small lean beef roast is BIG on flavour and just the right size for smaller families. Season with a quick rub and cook to medium doneness at most. To serve, carve across the grain into thin slices, like a Flank Steak. Be sure to allow the beef to rest before carving.
