This was very good. Though, like KeyWee, I ended up with an very rare roast. I ended up throwing it back in the next night at 500 for about 45 minutes. Other than changing the time, it was good.


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Spray roasting pan with no-stick spray.
  3. Trim roast as desired, pat all over with Kitchen Bouquet, sprinkle with garlic powder and pepper.
  4. Roast meat exactly 7 minutes per pound for medium-rare meat.
  5. Turn off oven but DO NOT OPEN DOOR.
  6. Leave meat in oven 2 hours longer.
  7. Serve immediately or wrap and refrigerate for the week ahead.
