We tried the same lamb recipe with a roast last night. It turned out great!!
Since we didn't get to trim, pound, tie the roasts at the cooking class, that was an endeavor last night. TJ wanted to try doing that. Watching a left handed person using knives is really quite humorous! Not a jab at his wielding skills, just not something I have seen before.
If you want a rich tomato sauce, seriously, roast a can of chopped tomatoes on TOP of a beef roast, then blend up all the juices in the blender. In the future, I am going to make meatballs, brown them, top them with tomato and then bake them in the oven. Then blend up the tomato and whatnot and put the meatballs back in the sauce. It is just so much better than stove top simmered sauce!
