Roast Beef with Garlic and Herbs

Ingredients:

  • 1 beef roast *
  • nutmeg
  • garlic powder, not salt
  • black pepper
  • ground oregano
  • basil

Instructions:



*The roast must be a cut that is normally cooked uncovered in the oven. Either boneless rump, eye of round, boneless rib, standing rib, beef or pork.

Place roast in pan, on rack, and season so that excess seasoning stays in pan to flavor gravy. Season with nutmeg, garlic powder, black pepper, ground oregano and basil. Do not skimp on the seasonings. Season liberally and pat seasoning into meat. The nutmeg is the secret ingredient here so use plenty. It gives the meat a delicious flavor plus aids in the browning process.

Place roast beef with the fat side up so the fat will baste roast as it cooks. If there is no fat on the roast, spray the roast with Pam cooking spray. Place seasoned roast in 500° oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue cooking for remainder of time (see below). Do not open oven during first half hour of cooking.

Timing the roast: 35 minutes per pound for a beef roast. 45 minutes per pound for pork at 325°. The first 20 minutes at 500° is included and is part of the total cooking time.
Roast beef recipe is adapted from a recipe in "Tell Me More" from the Jr League of Lafayette, LA
