Melt In Your Mouth Roast Beef

Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories) Recipe

By Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories) KimmiK

When simular recipes just call for salt, pepper & flour...I like to bring it up a notch & add some flavor to it.

To add some taste...I add worcestershire sauce & garlic powder w/ parsley. Mmmmmmm! It doesn't get any better than that!

Cooking Method:
Bake

Ingredients

3 - 5 lb
roast (see notes below)
worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp
kosher or sea salt
1 1/2 tsp
black pepper
1 Tbsp
garlic powder
1 Tbsp
parsley
1/4 - 1/2 c
all purpose flour
AU JUS: (OPTIONAL BUT OH SO WORTH IT!)
QUICK AU JUS:
pan drippings (including flour)
1 env. pkg
mccormick au jus gravy mix

Directions

1
IF MAKING HOMEMADE AU JUS...go to Homemade Au Jus
2
ROAST:

Let roast sit out for 4 hours for it to come to room temperature.
3
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
4
In medium bowl, mix salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley & flour together, mix well.
5
Place roast on wire rack in roasting pan (or can use aluminum foil pan). Rub worcestershire sauce all over roast. Rub mixture all over roast.


NOTE: If using lean cuts of meat that have very little fat...place a stick of butter in pan (cut up). The finest restaurant use this trick to prevent meat from drying out. Plus it would add flavor to the au jus (if making from quick version).

NOTE: Types of meat that will work with this are...
boneless beef rump roast, eye of round, beef tenderloin, bone-in rib eye roast, sirloin tip roast, prime rib, bone-in standing rib roast, boneless turkey breast, pork tenderloin, venison or whatever else you can think of.

COOKING TIMES:

Rare: 4 1/2 minutes per pound - DO NOT OPEN OVEN!!!

Medium Rare: 5 1/2 minutes per pound - DO NOT OPEN OVEN!!!

Well Done: 7 - 8 minutes per pound - DO NOT OPEN OVEN!!!
(but who would want to do that - it would ruin the meat totally!)
7
When done cooking, turn oven off & DO NOT OPEN OVEN OR REMOVE THE ROAST. Let oven completely cool, about 2 - 3 hours. The most important part of this is NOT OPENING OVEN!!!

NOTE: The roast needs to be as thick as wide.


NOTE: If using boneless turkey breast - cook it the same way but the turkey needs to stay in in oven for at the very least 8 hours after the oven is turned off. And I would also use Tony Chachere's Injectable Marinade to keep it moist. They have different flavors you can try out...
Butter (which is the one I usually use)
Roasted Garlic & Herb
Butter & Jalapeno
Honey Bacon & BBQ
Praline Honey Ham
8
When oven is cool, remove roast & place on cutting board, cover with foil & let rest 5 - 10 minutes for juices to settle.

QUICK AU JUS:

In medium saucepan, pour in pan drippings(meat drippings), add Mccormick au jus gravy mix & 3 C water gradually into gravy mix. Stirring frequently, cook on medium high heat until gravy comes to boil.

For a thicker gravy, add 3 Tbsp of flour with gravy mix before adding water.
