How to make it

  • Slice a few cloves of garlic into pieces. Make slits all around the meat and insert the garlic pieces into the slices on the beef.
  • Season roast with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you desire.
  • Place roast in roasting pan or baking dish. Do not cover or add liquid. Place in 500 degree oven and then immediately turn the heat down to 475 degrees.
  • Roast at 475 for 7 mins per pound. So with a 3lb roast: 21 minutes.
  • After that, turn oven off and let roast sit in oven for 2.5 hours. Do NOT open the door during this time.
  • Remove roast, rest, carve, devour.

    This turned out perfect. I did a 6.5 pound Roast for the Sunday Family Dinner, and it pleased all 11 of us. Next day, made stoup / a cross between soup and stew, with the leftovers and even that got raves.
    Thanks

    Followed recipe to the letter and the resulting rock in my roasting pan was a big disappointment. Plus I'm out $10.00.
    Won't be making this again.

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You...did exactly what the recipe said 6 lb. roast...7 min. lb. - 42 min., actually I think I may have left in for 45 min. @ 475 degrees....turned oven off..."did not" open oven door for 2-1/2 hrs....it was beautiful...tender, light pink in color..my guest loved it and they "all" wanted the recipe!!! I do like my beef a little on the rare side..so next time I may take out 1/2 hr. less...I am going to play w/it! Original recipe..did exactly what you said otherwise...Thanks again, it was DELICIOUS and I will most definitely be using it again...Oh, by the way Arizona, I live in AZ too!!
    PS: Had I read your review before cooking, on time off for rare..I would have had the perfect roast, LOL!!! Thanks again!!! :)

    Tried this with a 2 lb Eye of round, put it in for 15 min and then turned oven off. after 2.5 hours meat thermometer read 133 degrees. Don't know if I should have increased the initial time at 475F or not. I had to turn oven back on to finish roast.

    I'm making this tonight, and I normally sear the meat on the stove top and bake at like 225 for a long time to get the tenderness. I'm praying on this you guys!! LOL I'm assuming this would come out more rare?? I love medium to medium rare so I uped the the cook time by some to hopefully help it cook a bit quicker. We live in AZ and since it's sooo hot here to roast something, I'm praying this works outs!!! : ) Thanks everyone!

    Made this tonight, I had a 6 lb one before I trimmed fat, so I cooked for 35 min and rested in the oven for 2.5 hours, after taking it out temp was only slightly over 100 and still pretty rare, I think next time I will add another min per pound.

    But it was a tasty Roast Beef dinner with mashed potatoes gravy and corn

    I would opt to do the vegetables separately because I feel that they wouldn't need to spend as much time in the oven. I guess it depends on what they are?

    My friend who worked at a steakhouse for many years suggested that I inject bacon fat into the slits and rub the whole thing down with olive oil. I'm betting it will be good..
