MISSION, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- (Family Features) When it comes to holiday entertaining, there is nothing more elegant -- or easy -- than serving a beautiful roast. The elegance factor we can all understand, but easy? It's true. There is no need to be intimidated by a roast ever again.

Tender roasts are always cooked uncovered using dry heat methods, which results in producing the flavorful, deep brown crusty exterior. It's also important to allow the roast to rest before carving to ensure that the juices in the center have time to redistribute for maximum flavor and tenderness. This recipe for Blue Cheese and Cabernet Sauvignon Demi Glace is easy to make and just the right touch for the perfect holiday roast.
