High Temperature Eye of Round Beef Roast
I generously seasoned it with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper. I preheated the oven to 500F. Then I put the roast in the oven and reduced the heat to 475F. I roasted it for 7 minutes per pound = 21 minutes. I turned off the oven and let it sit in the oven for 2 1/2 hours. I did not open the oven once! See all that wonderful carmelization on the surface? It makes the beef so tasty. It was perfect. And eye of round is so nice to slice thinly for sandwiches.
