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!

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

GARLIC CRUST INGREDIENTS

1 c

cloves of garlic-crushed

fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp

How to Make Perfect Roast Beef with a Garlic Crust

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.
