This couldn't be any easier! I got this recipe from a greek woman who's father is a great chef.

This just didn't work for us. The butcher gave us a very nice top round roast that was on sale this week, and I followed directions of the recipe to the letter, BUT. The flavor was good but for some reason it was dry and tough. Can't see where I went wrong but I will grind it up and put it with mayo and use for sandwich filling. Thanks though for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Ask the butcher for this, so you get a nice piece of meat.
  2. Rub meat with vegetable oi. Season with salt and pepper and garlic.
  3. Put 1/2" water in a pan. Cook uncovered at 350* for 45 minutes and check the meat. Might need 10 more minutes, depending on how you like it. Formula is 10-15 minutes per pound, but it can need more time, depending on your oven.
  4. Let it rest for half hour before cutting into, that way the meat retains its juices!
