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.

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
