    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    This type of roast can be gotten from the butcher in the meat department at the supermarket. This recipe can also be used on other types of beef roasts. It is DELICIOUS!

    1. 1
      Thoroughly rinse the roast and pat dry with paper towel.
    2. 2
      Salt and pepper the roast on all sides for searing.
    3. 3
      Cover the bottom of a roasting pan with olive oil and set on medium-high heat about 4 minutes until very hot.
    4. 4
      Wearing a long sleeve shirt and oven gloves (so that you do not get splashed with hot oil), place roast into hot roasting pan and sear on all sides until nicely browned and about 1/2 cup of fat has rendered, which should take a total of about 6 to 8 minutes.
    5. 5
      If you do not get 1/2 cup of fat rendered, that is okay.
    6. 6
      Set a wire rack in another roasting pan, and then set the roast onto the rack.
    7. 7
      Pour the water over the roast, making sure that it covers the bottom of the roasting pan, and then pour the wine over the roast.
    8. 8
      Brush roast with Dijon mustard.
    9. 9
      Smear 1 tablespoon of minced garlic from jar onto top of roast.
    10. 10
      Season again with salt and pepper, and then sprinkle the rest of the seasonings evenly, including 4 tablespoons of Au Jus Powder and then place the 3 bay leaves on top.
    11. 11
      Place roast, uncovered, in the middle of the oven that has been pre-heated to 325 degrees F. for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until roast is almost done.
    12. 12
      If you desire it to be medium-rare, remove from oven when it is rare.
    13. 13
      If you desire it to be medium, remove from oven when it is medium-rare.
    14. 14
      After removing from oven, tent with aluminum foil.
    15. 15
      Allow to stand for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute themselves evenly throughout the roast, and for the roast to complete its cooking to your desired doneness.
    16. 16
      Set the roast onto a cutting board and carve.
    17. 17
      Place all of the juices, including the 1/2 cup of fat rendered from the initial searing process and 4 tablespoons of Au Jus powder into a gravy boat to serve as the au jus sauce or gravy.

      REALLY?!?!?!?!? OMGosh. I had a 2.5 lb roast on a Tuesday night that I was looking for something to do with. I must admit, I was not expecting anything fantastic, and did not want to make a trip to the grocery store, so I had some subs. I didn't have Au Jus mix, so I used an Onion Soup Powder. I didn't have a rack that fit my pan, so I set the roast onto of halved onions. (Actually, I think this made for some great broth!). I cooked mine at 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I took it out when my thermometer read "Rare" and as the roast rested for 10 minutes, it seemed to continue to cook... but it came out PERFECTLY pink on the inside with an incredible taste. DH likes his meat "DONE" while I like mine "RARE"... and this was a PERFECT blend for both of us. This is one of my new Top 10. Thank you so much... this will be served the next time we have guests. What an unexpected treat!!!!!!

      I had used part of my roast for another recipe, only had 1.4 lbs. Cooked for 55 min. and it was perfect. Loved the sauce to go with it. Served with scalloped potatoes and caramelized sourdough biscuits. YUM.
