“This is a fail-proof recipe for roasting Beef. It comes out perfect every time. Rule of thumb: Cook the roast for 20 minutes at 500°F then turn the heat down to 300°F and cook for 18 minutes per pound for medium rare. I have been cooking my roasts this way for 20 years and every time I make a roast my husband and friends cannot stop complementing my expertise.”
