Roast Beef

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 11-05 May 2008

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 pounds boneless rump roast -- (4 to 5 pounds)
Olive oil
12 garlic slivers
Salt and pepper

For the gravy:
1/4 pound butter -- (1 stick)
1 cup flour
2 cans beef stock -- (2 to 3 cans)
Worcestershire sauce -- to taste
Salt and pepper -- to taste

1. Start with the roast at room temperature (remove from refrigerator 1
hour before cooking - keep it wrapped). Preheat the oven to 375F.

2. With a sharp knife make 12 small incisions around the roast. Place a
sliver of garlic into each incision. Take a tablespoon or so of olive oil
and spread over the roast. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper. Place
the roast on a cooling rack, fatty side up, over a drip pan. This
arrangement creates convection in the oven so that you do not need to turn
the roast. The roast is placed fat side up so that as the fat melts it will
bathe the entire roast in its juices. Add a cup of water (or enough to
cover the bottom of the pan) to the drip pan to prevent the drippings from

3. Brown the roast at 375F for half an hour. Lower the heat to 225F. The
roast should take somewhere from 2 to 3 hours additionally to cook. When
the roast just starts to drip its juices and it is brown on the outside,
check the temperature with a meat thermometer. Pull the roast from the oven
when the inside temperature of the roast is 135F to 140F. Let the roast
rest on a cutting board for at least 15 minutes, tented in aluminum foil to
keep warm, before carving to serve. Slice only enough of the roast for
consumption that meal.

To make the gravy:

In a heavy pan, melt the butter over medium heat and add the flour,
stirring constantly until a roux is formed and is the color you prefer for
your gravy. Add the juices from the dripping pan to the roux and (one at a
time) cans of beef broth until you are happy with the consistency. Add
Worcestershire, salt and pepper to taste.

For leftovers, trim the remaining roast of fat and slice as thin as
possible. Makes great sandwiches.
