Easy Saucy Roast Beef

Recipe by SpchTeachCooks
READY IN: 1hr 15mins


  • 2 -4
    lbs beef roast (I use rump roast, but any cut will work)
  • 2 -3
    tablespoons McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning
  • 2
    (3/4 ounce) packages brown gravy mix
  • 3
    cups water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place beef roast in roasting pan on top of a roast rack so that it is not laying flat on the pan bottom.
  • Cover beef with montreal steak seasoning so that you don't even see the beef surface; if you don't have the seasoning, you can sub salt and lots of fresh cracked pepper and maybe a touch of garlic powder (but it won't be exactly the same).
  • Roast beef for about 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on size; you can use meat thermometer to check if you like, meat should be at medium rare.
  • Let meat rest for a few minutes; while this is going on, mix 3 cups cold water with 2 packages brown gravy mix (a whisk really helps here).
  • After a few minutes, slice roast beef as thin or thick as you like; my family likes it about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Set aside a few slices for those who like their meat medium rare.
  • Drain pan drippings from roast pan into a large frying pan, add gravy mixture, stir until it starts to bubble.
  • Place roast beef slices that you want to be well done into pan with gravy, cook and let gravy reduce a bit, about 10 minutes or so.
  • Put well done beef and also saved medium rare slices onto a serving platter and drizzle last bits of gravy over all. Enjoy!
