I also have a Garlic Infused 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.

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.

  1. Hi,
    I was wondering if it would be possible to at least give us at least an approximate time to put it in the oven for?
    I get very busy with kids that I don’t have time to be checking on it every 10 minutes to see if it’s the correct temperature. 
    It sounds really good but personally I need to have a time. 
    Thank you so much in advance. 

    • At least 45 minutes, but if you keep the thermometer in you can glance at it from time to time. It will vary depending on the size.

  2. Do you roast with a lid or without?
