This is a combination of two great recipes! I found these recipes on a cooking site. One recipe was for the crust (by Magpieno6) and one was for the cooking method (by Wynnebaer) of the roast beef! Both worked perfectly together! I added my photo!

Cook:
1 Hr 25 Min

Ingredients

3 lb
roast beef-no larger or cook time will be off
salt & pepper to season the roast

NOTE: ANY CUT OF ROAST BEEF WORKS FINE WITH THIS RECIPE.

GARLIC CRUST INGREDIENTS

1 c
fresh white breadcrumbs-white slice bread works fine
6 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
4 large
cloves of garlic-crushed
3 Tbsp
fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp
kosher salt
1/2 tsp
pepper

Step-By-Step

1Season the roast beef with salt and pepper.
2Now make the garlic crust by heating the oil in a frying pan.
3Add Garlic and saute for 2 minutes, stirring. Then
mix in breadcrumbs, parsley, salt and black pepper
4Allow mixture to cool, then press this mixture onto the seasoned roast beef. This should be enough to cover just the top and sides of the roast.
5Preheat oven to 500*
6Bake UNCOVERED for exactly 23 minutes. This cooking time will give you a medium/well roast, as in the picture. If you want it more or less cooked adjust the cooking time. For medium/rare 15 minutes.
7Shut oven off and DO NOT open door for 1 hour (important)
8Take roast out and let it rest for 15 minutes, covered.
9Then just slice and serve.
