Fresh from Grandma Peggy’s stove, this family favorite is an easy, delicious crowd-pleaser.

This recipe was Mom’s “old faithful” for company or just a fancy, flavorful family meal. In fact, His Favorite Roast Beef has been getting rave reviews for over thirty years. (The gravy is especially delicious on garlic mashed potatoes.)


  • 3 lbs. rolled rump roast
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • 2 T sugar
  • ¼ tsp. allspice
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ¼ tsp. cloves
  • ½ cup water
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil


Coat roast with flour mixed with seasoning.  Brown well on all sides in oil in Dutch oven.  Remove excess fat.  Add remaining ingredients.  Cover.  Simmer about 3 hours or until tender.  Remove roast to warm platter; thicken liquid for gravy.  Four to six servings.
