Garlic Lover’s Roast Beef


  • 2-3 lb roast or eye round, fat trimmed off
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, cut into slivers
  • Olive oil spray (I used my misto )
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh pepper
  • 2 tsp dried chopped rosemary (optional)
  • Thermometer


  1. Remove roast from refrigerator 1 hour before cooking to reach room temperature. Trim all the fat off the meat. Using a sharp knife, pierce meat about 1/2 inch in and add a sliver of garlic in each hole, pushing all the way in. Lightly spray the meat with olive oil and season generously with salt, pepper and rosemary. Place the thermometer all the way into the center of the meat.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. When the oven reaches 350°, place the roast in a roasting pan and put in the oven.
  3. Roast until the thermometer reads 130° for rare, 140° for medium rare, 150° for medium, and 155-160° for well done. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest 10-20 minutes before you cut it so that the juices are distributed evenly. I remove my roast beef from the oven when it is 135° for medium rare. The temperature will rise an additional 5 degrees as it sits.

There’s no “Print” option for her recipes. They are basically useless to me if I can’t print them out.
