Herb Rubbed Roast Beef

This past weekend my husband Andrew and I decorated our house for the holidays. It was so much fun listening to holiday music, drinking egg nog and putting up our Christmas tree. We made this amazing herb rubbed roast beef for dinner and served it with salt crusted baked potatoes, cranberry salad and a glass of shiraz viognier. It was so nice sitting in our dining room looking at the beautiful tree and decorations filling our house. It just never seems like the holidays until we decorate, so for me it is now officially the holiday season. 🙂 Give this delicious roast beef recipe a try-with 8 different herbs marinating the beef, it is sure to be a hit with your family.

    Meat alone doesn’t usually photograph well, but this! This could cause some screen saliva.
