On our first day back in Oregon from our trip to Idaho it was cool and cloudy which made me crave comfort food. I decided to make roast beef with a garlic crust. It was simple to make, made my house smell amazing, and it was tender, juicy, and so delicious. This roast beef paired nicely with the Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and my House Salad. Sometimes you just can’t beat good old comfort food!
Note: I always let my meat sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a roasting pan with tin foil (for easier clean up). Place a roasting rack inside of the pan.
In a small bowl mix the seasonings, olive oil and garlic until well combined. Rub over the entire eye of round roast then place in a roasting pan with the fat side up. I use an electronic meat thermometer with an alarm which is inserted in the center of the beef roast.
Bake the 2lb roast for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat (without opening the oven door) to 275 degrees and continue roasting for about 60+ minutes or until the thermometer reads 135-140 degrees (for medium rare). Remove from oven and let rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
