Serving Size: Serves 4 Ingredients
  • 2 3/4 lbs Eye Round Roast (tied)
  • 1 1/2 tsps Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Remove your beef from the fridge 30 minutes before you're about to cook it to let it get to room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 500 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together your salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic powder. Rub this mixture all over your roast beef.
  • Place the roast beef, fat side up on a wire/metal rack in a roasting pan. Place in the oven and cook 25 minutes.
  • Shut off the oven, without opening the oven door, and let the roast sit in the oven for 2 hours. DON'T OPEN THE OVEN until the 2 hours is up.
  • After the 2 hours, remove the roast from the oven, and let it rest about 15 minutes before carving. Serve with horseradish cream sauce.
