Roast Beef

Traditionally, we serve beef during our Christmas dinner. Here is a very simple recipe that will have everyone excited at the table.

  • 3 pounds beef eye of round roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). If roast is untied, tie at 3 inch intervals with cotton twine. Place roast in pan, and season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Add more or less seasonings to taste.
  2. Roast in oven for 60 minutes (20 minutes per pound). Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Serves 6.
  • Beef should be cooked at 375 degrees at about 20 minutes per pound.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes, green beans and beef gravy.
