Simple Recipe For Perfect Roast Beef

Here’s a simple recipe for perfect roast beef!


  • 3 to 4 pounds of beef roast (such as ribeye or sirloin)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius).
  2. Take the beef roast out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. This ensures more even cooking.
  3. Pat the roast dry with paper towels. This helps to achieve a nice sear on the meat.
  4. Rub the roast with olive oil, coating it evenly. Season the roast generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Place the seasoned roast on a roasting pan with a rack. The rack allows air to circulate around the meat, promoting even cooking.
  6. Roast the beef in the preheated oven for 15 minutes to sear the outside and lock in the juices.
  7. After the initial searing, reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (163 degrees Celsius).
  8. Continue roasting for about 15 minutes per pound for medium-rare doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature; it should read 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit (57-60 degrees Celsius) for medium-rare.
  9. Once the roast reaches your desired doneness, remove it from the oven and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
  10. Slice the roast against the grain into thin slices and serve with your favorite sides.

Remember that cooking times may vary based on the size and type of roast, so it’s always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure the desired level of doneness. Enjoy your perfect roast beef!
