This was so good... I have never made a roast beef before... i used a bottom round roast... and did some other research on how to cook it. I took it out the fridge and left it on the counter for a hour so it could be room temp. Than rubbed it. I cooked it at 450 for 10 mins and it got a little crust out the outside than turned it down to 300 and cooked till the thermometer read 145.. i had a 2.75lb bottom round roast... let it sit 15 mins and sliced it thin... didnt even need the gravey... Awsome

This was the most superb roast beef I have ever cooked. I cooked it to medium rare and used the gravy for mashed potatoes. The combination of herbs and mustard used on this roast created a sublime aroma throughout my whole house as it cooked...and the taste was to die for. I've never been able to cook a decent roast until now. This will be the roast beef recipe that I use from now on. Thanks NurseDi for another wonderful recipe!
