This healthy looking meal in a bag is one of those tasty, loyal, never-let-you-down kind of recipes.
Although the meat and vegetabls are in a bag, the bag doesn't act as a 'sunblock'. The transparency of it allows the meat and vegetables to 'tan' to a perfect shade of dark brown. They say there's nothing quite like a bronze-tanned piece of oiled beef!

- 4 parsnips, cut into 2 inch chunks

Place all the vegetables with the thyme in a bowl and coat with the oil. Sprinkle with the sugar and coarse salt.
Place the vegetables into a large cooking bag together with the meat. Roast for 2 hours at 180 Deg. C/ 350 Deg. F

TIP: Ask your butcher to spice the roll of beef with Bbq or roast beef spice. Carrots, cubed butternut and baby potatoes can also be added.
