Sadly, I did not have the same amazing outcome as everyone else, despite following the recipe exactly. But I believe it was due to the size of my roast (3 lbs., which is rather small for this type of roast), as it was overcooked (not medium rare in the middle, which is what I was hoping for). I'd like to try again with a larger roast or maybe a small roast with shortening the cooking time (or resting time) a little, as I still have faith in the recipe due to the reviews. It can just be an expensive "experiment".

WOW! Tried this for New Year's Eve and....wowwww! Fabulously easy way to cook a VERY expensive roast! Our's was 8.5 pounds, so on the 2nd "cook" we let it go for an hour--it was perfectly medium rare. Everyone raved. Nobody believed it when we told them what we did. Added some garlic to the salt and pepper cuz that's how we roll!

The ultimate recipe! So simple! It turned out perfect & stories will be told for generations to come! I make a marinade of blended green bell peppers, white onions, cilantro and garlic and lightly glaze it all over the roast. I leave it over night and before putting it in the oven I do a dry rub it with seasoned salt! Secret Tip: Sit it on top of baby potatoes, whole carrots and brussel sprouts (if you like them). You'll be amazed! ?

Perfect results with this recipe. I had a 5lb, 3 rib roast, an old stove so I used an electronic thermo to make sure it was actually at 375 (which turned out to be 340 on the dial), then put the remote sensor in the center and cooked an hour. Turned it off, let it go about 40 minutes and then back on at 375, In about 30-40 minutes the internal temp was a recommended 135F and I removed it and let it rest a bit. AWESOME!! I usually only BBQ and my wife had left this dinner party to me due to being busy, so I was so happy it turned out well. Big hit, delicious, juicy, just right medium rare in the middle. Thanks for a great recipe.

What a great and easy recipe!
The meat came out perfect. Medium rare in the center and medium to well at the end.
I rested the meat (5.07 lbs rib eye roast) for 25 minutes inside the oven for #6 and didn't use a meat thermometer.
Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Tried this recipe for Christmas Dinner with a 5.86 lb roast. Seasoned it with Cowcamp seasoning, basicalluy garlic salt and pepper. I put a a thermometer in the roast when I first put it in the oven and at after the first hour is showed 152 degrees and I was very worried. I prefer my meat rare, but was willing to go to med-rare so that everyone else would be happy. I turned off the oven and let the roast sit for 3 hours. I then turned the oven to 375 and left is for 20 more minutes. I came out fabulous! I am not sure it I misplaced my thermometer, or it is malfunctioning...but either way, the recipe works! Thank you!
