The Easiest Roast Recipe Ever!

I tried this recipe for the second time yesterday, and decided I just had to share.  A unique cooking method turns a usually tough cut of meat into a delicious meal, and it has quilting time built in!

1. Preheat oven to 500 F.

2. Season an Eye of Round roast with salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning blend. (I used Montreal Steak spice). Place in roaster, no cover, no water.

3. Place roast in oven for 7 minutes per pound.  (5 minutes per pound if your roast is 5 lbs. or larger).  Set your timer, for me that was 21 minutes, as my roast was about 3 lbs.

3. Do not be tempted to leave your kitchen at this point.  Your oven is on at 500 degrees!!  I used the time to peel potatoes, carrots and wash some lettuce.

4. When you hear the timer, shut your oven off.  Do not open the oven door or you will spoil the whole thing. Let the roast sit in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.  (At this point it is probably best to leave the kitchen and do some sewing so that you won't be tempted to peek).  Here is the end result.  Seared on the outside and tender and a nice medium on the inside.

My family was very happy with Monday night supper, and I didn't spend too much time in the kitchen!





  1. Looks delicious!!! Your going to have to make that for me the next time I visit :)

  2. Next time I cook a roast will have to give this a try. I usually do pot roasts.
