This was my mother's signature recipe. Simple, but classic - you can't go wrong. Leftovers are delicious cold for sandwiches with wholegrain mustard.

I have made roast beef and lamb with this amount of garlic before and it has been a success and def not ruined the meat so not sure what you did but it should have been fine.-16 Jan 2011

Babajangas I can't believe how incredibly rude you are! You chose to try the recipe. The only person responsible for it not being how YOU like it is YOU. I also like a lot of garlic on my meat, it is all a matter of taste. Surely you had some idea when putting the garlic in if it seemed too much for your own liking?-23 Feb 2013

This is the worst recipe that I have ever tried. I followed it to the letter and it ruined a very expensive piece of beef and left me very red faced. I absolutely LOVE garlic but this was overkill and ruined what was a very tender piece of beef that I had cooked to perfection!-07 Dec 2009
