This roasted recipe is one of our favourites: it's super moist and tender, and with a unique spice blend. With whole cloves, allspice, and coriander, your house will smell AMAZING while this is baking. That said, if your beef came with a spice packet and you're a sucker for tradition, feel free to use that instead of our spice blend! We won't be offended, promise. 😊
