Best Oven Roast


From the time I was married I have been on a quest to cook the perfect beef roast in the oven.  The perfect beef roast has to be moist, flavorful and also fave dripping to create a yummy gravy.  I finally found the perfect way to make it about 8 years ago after talking with my local butcher.  He told me how he likes to make a beef roast in the oven.

It isn’t really complicated at all to do.  The secret is the process of cooking it.  Ever since them, this is how I make my beef roast.  You can always add some herbs to the broth if you really want to, but it isn’t necessary.  You can also sear the meat before cooking, but that also isn’t necessary.  I prefer to sear it so you get a little crust to the outside of it.

 


Best Oven Roast
 
Ingredients
  • 3-5 pound beef roast (I like a rump roast but chuck will also work well)
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 cups of beef broth
Instructions
  1. Season roast well with salt and pepper and sear in a hot pan until all sides are golden brown.
  2. Place roast in a roasting pan with broth and cover with foil. Or you can use and dutch oven with a lid.
  3. Bake at 275 degrees until fully cooked. For a 3 pound roast it takes about 3 hours, a 4 pound roast about 4 hours. If you are using a cast iron pot it may cook a little faster since the pan holds the heat better. It also depends on how cooked you like your roast. I like mine medium well to well.
  4. Use what broth is left in the pan after cooking to make gravy.

  • As a chef my self, when learning to cook meat…the chefs tell u the ideal way to cook it to is medium/medium well.

  • I stopped reading the minute you mentioned medium to medium
    well. How can anybody, especially a food blogger, ruin a piece
    of meat like that?

    How can you even taste the beef if it’s medium well?

  • Glad I found this recipe! I will be making it today! Thanks for sharing! I will probably add some onions and garlic as well :)

  • You had me at the picture!! Ah-mazing YUMMY looking!! Can’t wait to try it & am sure my family will thank you for the recipe too!!

  • Looks good. I will have to give this a try. I have never cooked a roast at that low a temp before. I like to stud my roasts with little slivers of garlic. It add a great flavor. Just poke holes with the point of a knife and slip the garlic slices in. I then like to sear my roasts, too. Thanks for sharing.

  • Is the broth added before putting the roast on the oven…or used with the pan drippings after the roast is cooked for gravy? The instructions don’t say. Looks like a really yummy roast! Thanks for the recipe!

  • I cook pot roast in the crockpot most of the time, but this is how my mom did it!
