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!

Prep:

15 Min

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Season the roast beef with salt and pepper.
2
Now make the garlic crust by heating the oil in a frying pan.
3
Add Garlic and saute for 2 minutes, stirring. Then
mix in breadcrumbs, parsley, salt and black pepper
4
Allow 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.
5
Preheat oven to 500*
6
Bake 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.
7
Shut oven off and DO NOT open door for 1 hour (important)
8
Take roast out and let it rest for 15 minutes, covered.
9
Then just slice and serve.
