Herb-Garlic Beef Roast

This was YUM! I needed something on the table in 20 minutes and this was definitely quick-n-easy and satisfying!

This is the beef product I used - usually about $4.99 at my grocery store. There are usually coupons for $1.00 off available too.

Don't skip the herb/garlic topping!! It makes a world of difference. Enjoy!

1 lb. small red potatoes

Salt & pepper
