Gracie Allen's Classic Roast Beef

Total Time

This is about as classic a celebrity recipe you can get!


  1. Take the two roasts and put them in the oven.
  2. When the little one burns, the big one is done.

Lennie, this technique has finally put an end to my days of overdone roasts. You didn't specify a cooking temp. I roasted at 350 degrees to good results! Thanks for the five-star laugh.

Thank you! I needed that! I am seriously looking for the perfect roast and (stop laughing) this might just be perfect.

Thanks for the laugh Lennie. I loved Gracie Allen. The roast cannot get any easier to make can it?
