Slow Roasted Beef (Cook’s Illustrated)

by 247tasty

A relatively low and slow roast with a relatively cheap cut of beef (eye-round) yielded a very joyful roast. This was great for a Sunday dinner, but I roast this to make sandwiches of roast beef. Take care to make it one day before roasting, because it was tender to savor the roast for 24 hours before roasting. Again, Cook’s Illustrated has made flavorful roast beef the perfect technique.

Preparation time: 1080 minutes
Cooking time: 1210 minutes
Serves: 10


1 boneless eye-round (roast), (3.5- to 4.5-pound)
4 tsp kosher salt (2 tsp table salt)
2 tsp plus and 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, separated
2 teaspoons ground black pepper


1. Sprinkle salt evenly on all sides of the roast. Wrap plastic wrap and cool 18 to 24 hours.

2. Set the rack of the oven to 225 ° F heat furnace in the middle position.

3. Rub with 2 tsp of oil and sprinkle with pepper evenly on all sides. In 12-inch skillet, heat remaining tsp oil in medium-high heat until smoking begins.

4. Sear roast 3 to 4 minutes per side until browned everywhere. Transfer roast in the rimmed baking sheet to the wire rack.

5. Stir up to 115 ° F for medium-rare, 1 1/4 to 1 3/4 hours for medium, Roast until the center of roast inserted thermometer for the meat-sample or instant-read thermometer registered 125 degrees F.

6. Turn off the oven without opening the covers, and leave the roast until you open the meat thermometer or instant saw thermometer inserted into the center of the roast reached 130 degrees F to have a medium-rare or 140 ° F for a medium 30 to 50 Minute longer. Transfer to the sculpture board roast and let rest for 15 minutes.

7. Cross-sliced meat and serve as slenderly as possible.

This roast is not recommended for cooking in the past medium. Open the door of the oven as little as possible and remove the roast in the oven at temperature. If during the specified time of step 3 the roast has not achieved the required temperature, heat the oven for 5 minutes to 225 ° F, turn it off. Reduce the kosher salt amount to 3 teaspoons (1 1/2 teaspoons of the table salt) and 1 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper for smaller (2 1/2 to 3 1/5 lb) roasts. Cut half-way before cooking to make two smaller roasts for a 4-1/2 to 6-pound roast. Slice the brown as thinly as possible and, if desired, serve it with Horseradish cream sauce.
