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!

  • 1
    Season the roast beef with salt and pepper.

    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

    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.
