    We fixed a 4+ lb. sirloin for dinner and it turned out perfect.
    We will continue to use this recipe, winter & summer. Thank you for sharing!

    I cooked mine for 30 minutes and let it remain in the oven for 30 minutes after turning it off. It was soooooo good. I was full but I keep returning to the kitchen to get more and more.... I'm stuffed. Thanks for sharing.

    02/15/2013 Unfortunately this did not work for us. I used a 2 lb 13 oz, room temperature, rolled roast. Followed the directions precisely. The beef came out very under done, as in mostly raw. I wonder if my new oven cools off too quickly. There's no way to turn off the fan. (I'm pretty sure it ran for most of, if not all of, the hour when everyone in the house did NOT open the oven. Any ideas what happened? Thanks.

    That's amazing. Totally bookmarked. Do you know how many Prime Ribs I've overcooked. Ugh.

    I made this tonight and it worked perfectly! I like my meat medium / well, so I cooked it for 23 minutes before turning off the oven. Then after 1 hour i removed it, like you said. Then I covered it and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing. As you can see in my photo, it was cooked just the way i wanted!

    Thanks Wynne...I'll use your method from now on!

    I have been doing roasts like this for a long long time. The best way to prepare a small roast. Thanks for posting and your instructions couldn't be made any easier. Some people just don't read! Thanks Wynne! High 5 to you.

    Wynne.....awesome roast. It was perfect. Even Fred couldn't find anything to complain about dinner. It was a beautiful med-rare to rare roast, tender and flavorful. And the easiest I've ever made. Much better than anything else I've roasted before which always came out more like shoe leather. Really, there is enough left for a few sandwiches but my goodness, I consider myself lucky to have that left!

    You're kidding of course! 15 minutes at 500 degrees? I'll try it!

    Thanx,

    This MUST be done with a 2-3 lb. roast as Eeks can attest to....:)

    Okay...what am I doing wrong?? I tried this exactly like printed, 4 lb round roast...came out blood-raw and runny...my family made me take them out for dinner...Did I miss something...500 degrees, 15 minutes, oven 'on' and 1 hour in hot oven 'off'.
