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!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 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

How to Make Perfect Roast Beef with a Garlic Crust

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.
