How to Prepare a Traditional Roast Beef

Items You Will Need:

  • Aluminum Roasting Pan
  • Rib Roast (1) (10 to 15 lbs.)

  • Black Pepper (Cracked)
  • Groceries
  • Kosher Salt
  • Non Virgin Olive Oil
  • Thermometer for Meat

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Step 2

Take the original packaging off of the roast beef. Rinse the meat with cold water. Place it in the aluminum roaster.

Step  3

Apply the non virgin olive oil to the surface of the beef. Do not get oil in the bottom of the alumni roaster.

Step  4

Season the roast with the cracked pepper and salt.

Step 5

Put the roast beef in the preheated oven.

Step 6

Cook for 20 minutes. Lower the heat of the oven to 325 degrees.

Step 7

Open the stove and check to see if the roast beef is cooked all the way. You can use a meat thermometer. If you want rare results the temp should read 130 to 135 degrees. For medium rare results the temp should read 140 to 145 degrees. For a medium roast, the temp should read 155 degrees. A big roast may need between two and four hours to completely be done.

Step 8

Allow the roast beef to sit for 20 to 30 minutes to rest at regular room temperature before slicing with a sharpened kitchen knife. This allows the juices to redistribute themselves throughout the beef. This actually contributes to whether the meat will be dry or tender.

Step 9

Decide which side dishes should complement your roast beef. Standard accompanying items can range from carrots, mashed potato, rice, celery or even whole potatoes. Roast beef is flexible and can be paired with many items. Serve the roast while it is hot. Enjoy your classic roast beef.
