  1. I rub with a bit of oil, then roast at 350 for about 40 minutes. Turn down the oven to about 200 and let it cook slowly to about 140 interior temp. I don't use a rack in the roasting pan. It cooks so slowly the juices don't run much, so it's not sitting a a puddle. Meat gets nice and tender..Time depends on size, but a couple hours or more. I season at the table.

      sounds good .....I think I'll give it a try Thanks

    2. I depends on the size of the roast. That would work for a larger roast, but for a smaller one I'd do it at 200 for the whole time (my Mom taught me "200 degrees for an hour per pound" for rare/medium rare).

        That's a great tip, thanks for posting it! I'll try that the next time I make roast beef. What size/poundage do you think that rule works best with?

          what a great mom. I think my mom recommends 350, till it's done, for just about everything.

          1. This cut of beef also makes an excellent pot roast. Brown in a bit of oil and tuck it into a heavy dutch oven with lots of onions and red wine or beer.
