I found that one at a doc's office and copied it. It works really well. Cooking time includes the warming time, actual roasting time and resting time.

This was the best roast beef I have ever tender and it was just a top round roast not a rib roast! I will only cook a roast this way now-no more tough meat! Very easy directions to follow and can be modified to suit any size roast.
