Kris' Story

I found this recipe a long time ago, and haven't found any better way to prepare roast beef. Done correctly, this recipe results in a perfectly cooked roast.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This meat came out of the oven cooked to absolute perfection!  It was the prefect doneness for my family, although it may be on the rare-side for some.  I was SOOOO tempted to open the oven but I resisted and was rewarded for my patience.

Ingredients

5 lb
Roast Beef
1 Tbsp
salt
2 tsp
Pepper
1 c
all purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
2
Start with roast at room temp.
3
mix salt, pepper, and flour together, rub on roast
4
roast at 5 minutes per pound, DO NOT OPEN OVEN!!!
5
At the end of cooking, turn oven off DO NOT OPEN OVEN OR REMOVE ROAST.
6
Let oven completely cool (2-3 hours)
7
When oven is cool, remove roast and enjoy. The most important part of this is NOT OPENING OVEN -- this is truly the best roast beef recipe I've found.

Any suggestion on what type of beef works best for this recipe. I know it list "Roast Beef" in the ingredients. Would love some suggestions. Has anyone tried a Boneless New York Strip Loin Roast? Thank you!

This was timed for 5:30 dinner . preheat oven at 500F spice roast to your liking, put in shallow roast pan lined with foil and on a rack and stick it in the oven. Turn oven down to 450 F. We had a 7lb eye of round. Cook at 7 min per lb 49 min. turn oven off and let sit 1 hr.Turn oven back on to 275F for 10 min per Lb. (70 min). Take out and cover with foil to let it rest 15min. For an eye of the round It came out pretty good. I will try a piece of tin foil draped on top lose next time to see what it does. Hope this works for you.

I have a 3 lb eye of the round. Can I do this? I'd like it medium-rare.

should water or broth be added before putting in the oven?

Hi Liz,
Please let us know how it turns out. I would like to make a smaller roast too. What was your timing?
