Roast Beef with a Garlic Crust

 Roast Beef with a Garlic Crust

I just love a tasty hunk of flavorful beef sometimes...especially when it's so easy to make!

This is a combination of two recipes that I tried many years ago on a cooking site called One recipe was for the crust and one was for the cooking method of the roast beef. The two recipes worked wonderfully together to create this perfectly cooked roast with a crisp garlic breadcrumb crust!

Here is how I made this...

Roast Beef with a Garlic Crust
Roast Beef with a Garlic Crust

3 lb. roast beef-no larger or cook time will be off
salt & pepper to season the roast
1 cup fresh white breadcrumbs-white slice bread works fine
6 Tbls. olive oil, extra virgin
4 large cloves of garlic-crushed
3 Tbls. fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Lightly season the roast beef with salt and pepper.
Now make the garlic crust by heating the oil in a frying pan.
Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes, stirring.
Then mix in breadcrumbs, parsley, salt and black pepper
Allow mixture to cool, then press this mixture onto the seasoned roast beef.
This should be enough to cover just the
top and sides of the roast, but not the bottom. 
Place the coated roast beef in a baking pan.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Bake UNCOVERED on middle rack for exactly 23 minutes.
This cooking time will give you a medium/well roast, as in the picture.
If you want it more or less cooked, adjust the cooking time. For medium/rare 15 minutes.
Shut oven off and DO NOT open door for 1 hour (important)
After one hour take roast out and let it rest for 15 minutes, covered.
Then just slice and serve warm.
