Top-ranked recipe named "Easy Roast Beef"

Share it:

My mother's roast beef recipe has always been a family favorite because it puts a relatively inexpensive cut of meat on the table, tender and tasty, with very little preparation or cooking attention.

"This extremely easy and delicious recipe works equally well with other inexpensive cuts of beef like the Eye of Round Roast, Bottom Round or Rump Roast (pictured), and the Top or Inside Round Roast. For even richer and more savory pan juices, and eventually gravy, try substituting Beef Broth or Beef Consomme for the water. To make a complete meal, when you add the water, also add your favorite vegetables (onions, potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms, etc.) and once cooked, simply thicken the pan juices and your meal is finished."

I thought I made a great beef roast but this was fantastic! I did make a few adjustments. I used fresh garlic which I put thin slices into roast by inserting paring knife and put salt and pepper directly onto roast instead of in flour. I
