Vampires beware, there’s garlic in every bite of this garlic lover’s roast beef! And if that’s not enough garlic, I like to serve this with a baked potato or garlic mashed potatoes because there’s never too much garlic in my house! Leftover roast beef make a great lunch the next day, some of my favorites are Roast Beef Sandwich with Melted Cheese and Caramelized Onions and Roast Beef Arugula and Shaved Parmesan on a Whole Wheat Baguette.

My family is always happy when they know roast beef is on the menu! And honestly, I love making roast beef on Sundays because it’s such an easy dinner and it always makes enough for leftovers. Making a perfectly juicy, medium-rare roast beef is easy with this foolproof recipe. The trick is to use an ovenproof meat thermometer such as this one (affiliate link) and you can’t mess up!

How To Make Perfect Roast Beef

  • Remove the roast from the refrigerator and let it stand room temperature, about 1 hour. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Salt the entire roast liberally with kosher salt and seasonings.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and place the roast on a pan. Insert the ovenproof meat thermometer into the center of the roast and cook until your desired doneness: 135° to 140° for medium-rare, 150° for medium, and 155-160° for well done. I personally remove my roast beef from the oven when it reads 135° for medium-rare. The temperature will rise an additional 5 degrees as it rests.
  • Always let the roast rest 10-15 minutes before you cut it so that the juices distribute evenly.
  • Slice thin, across the grain and eat right away.

Garlic Lovers Roast Beef is my family's favorite roast beef recipe, so flavorful and loaded with garlic as the name implies.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 lb roast or eye round, all fat trimmed off
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, cut into thin slivers
  • olive oil spray, I used my misto
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 2 tsp dried chopped rosemary
  • meat thermometer

Instructions

  • Remove the roast from refrigerator 1 hour before cooking to reach room temperature. Trim all the fat off the meat. Using a sharp knife, pierce meat about 1/2-inch deep and insert slivers of garlic in each hole, pushing all the way in. Lightly spray the meat with olive oil and season generously with salt, pepper and rosemary. Place the thermometer all the way into the center of the meat.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. When the oven reaches 350F, place the roast in a roasting pan and put in the oven.
  • Roast until the thermometer reads 130° for rare, 140° for medium rare, 150° for medium, and 155-160° for well done. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest 10-20 minutes before you cut it so that the juices distributed evenly. I personally remove my roast beef from the oven when it is 135° for medium rare. The temperature will rise an additional 5 degrees as it sits.
  • Slice thin and serve.

  1. Delicious! I overcooked it a bit because the cook time says an hour and 15, and when i took it out, the temp was 150. Still yummy for sandwiches… but I’ll be pulling it out earlier next time. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Made this tonight for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was a hit! Thank you so very much for another great recipe!
    If anyone is wondering about not using rosemary (I thought I had it on hand but couldn’t find it in the cupboard)…I can confirm that it is still a very flavourful roast with out it!

  3. If this has been asked and answered, please forgive. I’m cooking this for Thanksgiving and would like to know approximately how long cooking will take to medium rare. Thanks

  4. Just made this and it was delicious!  This is a recipe I will be making over and over again.  I paired it with green beans and roasted potatoes.

  5. If you don’t have a roasting pan, can you use a baking sheet with rack?

  6. If you don’t have a roasting pan, can you use a cookie sheet with oven rack? Thanks! Can’t wait to try.

  7. Has anyone done this in a pressure cooker? Making it tonight 

    • I cooked it in a pressure cooker for 40 minutes using 1/2 cup of liquid and let the PC cool down naturally. It was good.

  8. Can this be made in a crock pot or instant pot? If so how long would you suggest cooking? Thanks

  9. I do not have a good oven safe meat thermometer, can you suggest a good one?

  10. Making this tonight! So excited!

  11. I made this tonight for the first time. So easy and really good. My mother asked for seconds and that says it all. I’ve never had a bad skinnytaste receipe.

  12. Amazing!
