This recipe is great on nights when we have lots of after school activities. I can start cooking, turn it off and go (if you have a "stop cooking timer" on your oven, you can go even sooner;). Dinner is waiting when we get home. Toss together a salad or a couple of sides and done.
While the idea of cooking at such high temperature can be nerve-racking, have faith. You will love it! The most important part of this is NOT OPENING OVEN.
* 3-5 lb Roast Beef at room temperature
* Seasoning Rub of choice (McCormicks has a few)
* Combine 1 Tbsp salt, 2 tsp Pepper and 1 c all-purpose flour
To start, I wrap my roasting pan with foil for easy clean-up. You could also use a foil roasting pan from the grocery store, so you can just throw it away. I also tent the roast with foil to avoid splatter and the rub starting to smoke at the high temp.
1 Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
2 Start with roast at room temp.
3 Choose your favorite rub and rub on all sides of roast
4 Place in oven and roast at 5 minutes per pound for rare or 7 minutes for more well done.
ONCE IT'S IN, DO NOT OPEN OVEN!!!
5 When time is up, turn oven off, DO NOT OPEN OVEN OR REMOVE ROAST.
6 Let oven completely cool (2 hours)
7 When you are ready, remove roast, slice thin and enjoy.
