Ingredients:  
1 2-Pound Bottom Round or Rump Roast, Trimmed
1 Lemon, juiced
1 Oven Cooking Bag
2 Onions, thinly sliced
8 Baby Carrots

2 Cups Tomato Juice

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the beef in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle the beef with the lemon juice and pierce it with a fork. Cover and refrigerate until ready to roast,

Place the beef into the cooking bag according to package directions, You will likely need to add 2 T of flour to the bag to avoid an explosion during cooking. Place the bag containing the beef into the cleaned roasting pan and arrange the onions, carrots, and potatoes around the beef. Top it with the celery and bell pepper.

Sprinkle the beef with the garlic, mustard, and thyme. Pour tomato juice around the beef inside the bag. Seal the bag and cut some slits on the top of the bag.

Roast it for 1 hour or until very tender.

Remove the beef from the bag. Let it stand, covered with foil, for about 5-10 minutes. Cut the beef into slices. Arrange the vegetables around the beef on a serving platter.

Note, If you are preparing this dish at the last minute, pre-cut the uncooked beef into 1/2 inch slices. arrange the slices, slightly overlapping, in the oven cooking bag. It will reduce your cook time to about 45 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe provides a lot of vegetables in the cooking bag. For me, when serving 4 people, you won't have enough veggies for a crowd of four people. Add in some extra carrots , potatoes, and celery to ensure everyone gets their veggies. You may also wish to simply make mashed potatoes separately.
