Roast Beef and Gravy

I also have a Garlic Roast Beef for those garlic lovers. 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 Baguette.

Purchase a meat thermometer if you don’t own one and it will come out perfectly cooked every time.

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 1 hour
Cool Time: 20 minutes
Total: 1 hour 10 minutes
Serving Size: 4 oz meat

Ingredients

  • Meat thermometer a must
  • 2 to 3 lb top round or eye of round roast, fat removed
  • salt and fresh pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 onion quartered
  • toothpicks

For the Gravy:  (note 1/2 cup would be 1 point+)

  • Serving Size: 1/4 cup • Servings: 12 • Points +: 0 • Smart Points+: 0
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 4 tbsp flour

Instructions

  • Remove roast from refrigerator 1 hour before cooking so that it reaches room temperature.
  • Trim all the fat off the meat to keep it lean.
  • Rub the meat with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Using toothpicks, adhere onion pieces to the top of the roast.
  • Place the thermometer all the way into the center of the meat.
  • Place in a pan and set your oven anywhere between 300° to 350°.
  • 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 are distributed evenly. I always 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.

To Make Gravy

  • Add 1 cup of beef broth to the pan drippings, stirring to deglaze the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour it into a small pot and heat on medium.
  • Add 3 tbsp flour to remaining broth and mix well.
  • Pour it into the pot and whisk over low flame.
  • Add all drippings accumulated from cutting the roast beef into the pot, bring too a boil and stir until it thickens, simmering on low a few minutes.
  • Adjust salt and pepper.
