    1: Garlic Roast Beef

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly minced garlic
    • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
    • 3 pound Certified Angus Beef Brand Eye of Round Roast
    • 1/4 cup red wine
    • 1 cup beef stock
    • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
    • Kosher salt to taste
    • Freshly cracked black pepper to taste

    Instructions

    1. Prepare the beef the day before you plan to roast it. Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, with 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly minced garlic, 1 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper. Rub all over roast. Wrap roast tightly in saran wrap and refrigerate overnight. I place the roast in a container in case of leaks.
    2. Remove the roast from the refrigerator about an hour before roasting to allow it come to room temperature. Bringing the roast to room temperature will ensure more even cooking throughout.
    3. Preheat the oven to 500°F when you are ready to roast the beef.
    4. Place the roast in the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes to develop a beautiful crust on the outside.
    5. After the first 15 minutes, turn the oven off completely and cook for 45 minutes for a 3lb roast cooked to 125°F. LEAVE THE OVEN DOOR CLOSED.
    6. After 45 minutes, check the temperature of the roast by inserting an instant-read thermometer in the center. It should read between 125° and 130°F. If you prefer your roast a little more cooked, I recommend blasting at 500°F for the first 15 minutes and then turning the oven off and leave the roast, undisturbed, for 18-20 minutes per pound. For a 3 pound roast cooked to mid-rare you would leave it in the oven for 54 minutes to an hour until your desired degree of doneness.
    7. When the roast is done to your liking, remove it from the skillet to a carving board for resting. Allow to rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
    8. Prepare the au jus in the same skillet by first deglazing the skillet with 1/4 cup red wine. Be sure to scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet to incorporate with the wine.
    9. Bring the wine to a boil and add 1 cup beef stock. Simmer until the liquid in the skillet is reduced by 1/2 – about 10 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves. Give the sauce a taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Serve with the sliced roast beef.
    10. Remove the string around the roast. Slice the roast as thinly as you can. Serve with the au jus and enjoy!
