Music Crush Monday

Crushing on some Drake White this week while I breeze through this day off that I gave myself. I first heard this gem when he opened for Zac Brown Band in West Palm Beach. Loved him. Love him.

He especially pairs well with all the fun things you could do during your day off. Like tackle your first roast!

Here goes nothing…


3lb eye of the round

1 tbsp of sea salt

1/2 cup of gluten free flour (see blend here)

3 tbsp of vegetable oil

3 tbsp of Italian blend seasoning

2 1/2 cups of beef broth

1 1/2 cup of red wine (I was drinking Pinot Noir so I used that!)

1 onion, cut into 1/8ths

Package of shitake mushrooms

Cast Iron Dutch Oven


Cover the roast with sea salt and then roll it in the flour.

Heat 3 tbsp of vegetable oil in dutch oven. Sear the roast for roughly 1 minute on each side.

Remove the roast and add the broth, wine, seasoning, onion, and mushrooms. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to a simmer. Place the roast back into the pot.


Cook for 2 hours.


Remove, cut, plate, and cover with some of the sauce left in the pan. Place the rest of the sauce in a gravy bowl and let people go wild.


This was my first time EVER making a roast and it tasted amazing! I paired it with some roasted carrots and green beans and the rest of the wine. Cheers to days off! DO NOT be surprised if you feel like Giada has nothing on you.
