Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place the meat fat side up in a roasting pan.
  • Insert a meat thermometer so the bulb is in the center of the meat, not touching bone or fat.
  • Place in a preheated 300°F oven.
  • Roast until rare or medium done, as desired, allowing for carryover cooking.
  • Thermometer readings:
  • Rare: 120°F (49°C)
  • Medium 130°F (54°C)
  • (Outer slices will be more done than center.)
  • Roasting time will be at least 3-4 hours.
  • Remove the meal from the pan, tent with tinfoil, and let stand in a warm place 30 minutes before carving.
  • Drain off all but about 3-4 oz of the fat from the roasting pan.
  • Be careful to retain any juices in the pan.
  • Add the mirepoix to the pan
  • Set the pan over high heat and cook until mirepoix is brown and moisture has evaporated, leaving only fat, mirepoix, and browned drippings.
  • Pour off any excess fat.
  • Pour about 1 pt of stock into the roasting pan to deglaze it.
  • Stir over heat until brown drippings are dissolved.
  • Pour the deglazing liquid and mirepoix into a saucean with the remaining stock.
  • Simmer until mirepoix is soft and liquid is reduced by about one-third.
  • Strain through a china cap lined with cheesecloth into a bain-marie.
  • Skim fat carefully. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • For serving, stand the roast on its widest end.
  • Cut down beside the bones to free the meat, and slice the meat across the grain.
  • Serve each portion with jus.
  • Variations:
  • Roast Rib-eye Roll, Top Round, Sirloin or Strip Join
  • These cuts may be roasted by the same procedure; roast them on a rack.
  • Roast Beef with Gravy
  • Roast desired cut of beef according to the basic recipe. Prepare gravy according to your personal preference.
