Tested till perfect Garlicky Roast Beef

Garlicky Roast Beef

The centrepiece of our personalized meat platter is this sliced oven-roasted beef, which has less salt and much more flavour than deli counter beef. A 3-lb (1.5 kg) eye of round oven roast will yield the pound of beautiful slices you need for the platter, plus plenty of leftovers to enjoy on another occasion.
