Favorite Ingredients Friday

Jim is a real meat and potatoes kinda guy. I've tried various roast recipes over the years. While he's praised all of them, this is the one he always asks for...and it's the easiest. What's especially nice is that it takes a cut of meat that's generally cheaper (and tougher) and makes a great meal out of it. It makes a good roast beef dinner, but it's even better sliced thinly and made into sandwiches. It's much better than the sliced roast beef at the deli counter, and it's much cheaper.

Eye of Round Roast

1. 1 eye of round roast
2. garlic salt
3. lemon pepper
4. paprika

Preheat oven to 500. Trim roast of excess fat. Liberally sprinkle the seasonings and rub into roast. You will need to know the weight of your roast. If you don't have a scale, use the weight that was listed on the wrapper. Place roast in oven. For medium-rare on the rare side, cook 5 minutes per pound. If you like it more pink than red, cook for 7 minutes per pound. You can adjust for yourself with experience.

When the cooking time is up, turn off the oven. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR. Let the roast sit for one hour.

When you first see it, it looks like a dried lump of meat on a dry pan. Then you slice into it and see how juicy it is. The high heat sears the outside and holds all the juices inside the roast.

That sounds GREAT - will have to try (my husband gets SOOO tired of my one and only way of cooking a roast in the crock pot)

This sounds great! My hubby loves pot roast and even more, roast beef sandwiches. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds wonderful and is a must try. I always wonder why some are so horribly dry...Now I know... Cooking to low.

Oronzo is a real meat and potatos kind of guy too! I'll have to try this one.

Thanks so much, Magi, for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange. I do appreciate it.
