      I know this sounds strange, but no matter what the size of the roast it will be perfectly medium rare with a crunchy crust.

      No more overcooked dinner.

      A word of advice is to NEVER leave meat in an oven for 4 to 8 hrs. with the heat off... Bacteria starts building on anything sitting out (even in the oven) after 2 hrs., and you can get VERY SICK!

      Interesting recipe. I followed it to the letter. The roast I had was small (About 2 lbs) and I though it came out too well done. It had the texture of a crock pot roast rather than a rare cooked roast. Will try it again with a larger and less expensive cut of meat. Hope you post more recipies.

      I have done it this way for YEARS! It IS always perfect! And, if you have someone in your family who is habitually late their tardiness will not ruin the meal! Just turn it back on when they walk through the door! And no, I do not worry about leaving the meat in the WARM oven for 4-8 hours. It is simply cooking at a very low temp....that is why you don't open the oven door.
