Tia Maria’s Savory Roast Beef
This savory roast beef will be your go to recipe. I make this dish a lot since it’s a family favorite and the best part is that leftovers all week are delicious. I make steak sandwiches, serve it with some gravy and potatoes and also beef quesadillas.
1 (3 to 4 pound roast beef) (top round or bottom round is best but you can use all types of roasts)
3 tablespoons my spice mix (order here) Lisbon Blue Etsy Shop
1 large onion (chopped)
2 large carrots (chopped)
2 stalks celery (cut in half)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 stick butter
Let roast come to room temperature (about 30 to 45 minutes out of refrigerator). Place roast in a large sheet pan. Season beef and vegetables with spices and top with olive oil and butter. Stir vegetables to coat with olive oil and spices.
Heat oven to 450. Place roast in oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400 degrees F. Cook for 1 hour. Shake pan half way into cooking. Let rest 30 minutes before slicing very thin.
Make a gravy by straining the pan juice into a saucepan. I take a short cut by adding a jar of beef gravy to pan. Stir and serve over the roast beef. Serve with vegetables if desired.
Note* I like my roast medium rare. Cook longer if you prefer.
