Easy FORKING GREAT Roast Beef Recipe


Easy Forking Great Roast Beef

Several times a year the supermarkets will have Choice Grade Eye Round on sale for less than for $3.00 a pound. That is when I prepare Roast Beef…..I usually buy a 7.5 pound package of it that I cut in half. I Do Note THE RECIPE WON’T WORK if the pieces of beef differ from the 3-4 pound size. Of course you can purchase two smaller packages but I never find them in the right size so I don’t think they come that way….so I buy the full package. Sometimes I have to trim a lot of hard fat and skin off.

I’m not the greatest at trimming but if I can do it then you can do it too. I cut the beef in 3-4 pound pieces. Then they get rubbed with oil and next my spice rub. Use 1/2 the spice rub on each beef. You don’t actually rub the spice into the meat…..I put the meat in a bowl, oil it and sprinkle the spice all over like a crust. This time I put the beefs in pans lined with a few carrots as a rack.

The meats then go on the middle rack in a 500 degree F oven for 15-18 minutes. DON’T OPEN THE OVEN or you will FORK IT UP! ……Shut the oven off and LEAVE the beefs in the oven for 2 1/2 hours. Pull them out and let them rest a half hour. Slice the beef and you will be FORKING AMAZED on how FORKING Delicious, Tender flavorful and Moist the beefs come out.

I didn’t invent this method for doing Roast Beef…..but a million people on the web do take credit for this method. The only difference is that everyone’s rub recipe will differ. I saw this method for roast beef on a bunch of TV Shows (including Rachel Ray) This method has been around forever but it is a great method. I’ve done it a bunch of times now. After doing it several times I suggest 15-18 minutes of 500 degrees F before you shut the oven off. REMEMBER 15-18 minutes at 500 degrees F and shut the oven off WITHOUT OPENING THE DOOR FOR 2 1/2 HOURS or you will FORK it up!

The Beef below was in the oven at 500 degrees F for 18 minutes. Oven was shut off without anyone opening the door…and stayed in for 2 1/2 hours.

Here is my recipe for the rub I did this time (and it might have been my best).  I note I didn’t measure exact so this is a guesstimate.

Ingredients for about 7 1/2 pound eye roast

1/3 cup canola oil

1/4 cup kosher salt

2 Tablespoons black pepper

2 Tablespoons granulated garlic

2 Tablespoons paprika

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

big pinch of ground cloves

I promise that you will thank me for this recipe. You also should save the juice that is sitting in the pan. Use it for reheating the beef.
