Italian Herb Crusted Bottom Round Roast

Mom always said the way to flavor the meat is to cut slits in the roast and stuff it with garlic and then rub it with oil, herbs and slow cook it. Here's
what that kind of roast ends up looking like. The taste is melt in your mouth fall apart meat, that has a wonderful moist Italian flavored crusty coating.


Here's some fabulous spices from Italy sent to me to cook with from Saverio @ Ariosto, if you have never tried these spices you are in for an unbelieveable flavor on your roasts, vegetables, fish or chicken...there are endless possibilities! That's not all they carry, you will find many other products on this site, including garlic paste to breadcrumbs. Saverio has an awesome website! Thank you so much for your generous offering, I am delighted with these wonderful spices and the flavors of these wonderful spices are fantastic added to any recipe!
