Roast Beef ~ oven roasted eye of round

Roast beef is one of those tricky things to get cooked to perfection and keep tender.  Charles did a great job with this little eye of round roast.  It was medium when finished and deliciously seasoned.

Roast Beef

  • 2 1/2 lb eye of round beef roast
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp fresh grated black pepper

Preheat oven to 330 degrees. Chop rosemary and mince garlic; season roast on top and sides with rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Place on rack in baking pan; bake for about 1 hour and 45 minutes or until desired doneness; next time we will back the time off a little to get a bit more of a medium rare; I think an hour and a half would achieve this.

Allow to rest 5 – 10 minutes before slicing.  We enjoyed ours with fresh beets and parmesan pasta.  I will post the steak sandwiches we made with the leftovers soon.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
