    dojemi's Note:

    This is a fool-proof recipe for medium-rare beef. It has never failed me. Adjust time accordingly if you want it rare or well done, but only by a minute or two. If the roast size in not an even number (say 4 1/2 lbs) roast for the lesser amount of time if you like it med-rare. Another minute or two for the 1/2 pound is not suggested. Roast time is for a 4 lb roast.

    8. 8

      Note: It is believed that adding salt to uncooked meat will draw out the juices.

      This was so good. I admit I was skeptical about the cooking time at first. In the past I used to cook my roast beef at 500 degrees for 5 mintues per pound, then shut the oven off and didn't open the door for 2 hours. The roast was always perfect. But sometimes you don'thave all that time and with bigger roasts it didn't always work perfectly, but this recipe was perfectly cooked! I am sold on this new method. Thank you so much for posting! It's a keeper for sure and the Veggies were to die for! Yum!
