I found this recipe on food.com, and it seemed to be exactly what I wanted.
|Served with potatoes au gratin and cheesy cauliflower. I know, a bit monotonous, but yummy.|
The beef turned out perfectly medium rare, with a beautiful exterior searing. I will be using this recipe again.
It couldn't be easier.
All you have to do is sprinkle the roast with salt, pepper, and a little Smoked Paprika. Then, rub the surface of the roast with a small amount of oil. Preheat the oven to 500 F. When it is to temperature, put the roast in for 5 minutes per pound (my roast was 2 pounds), turn the oven off and do not open the oven door for 2 hours.
That's it. Perfect roast beef.
