Super Easy 500 Degree Eye of Round Roast
1 Eye of Round Roast (2-3 pounds) Preheat oven to 500.
Season roast as desired; place on rack in shallow roasting pan. Do not add water or cover.
Place roast in the preheated oven and lower temperature to 475. Roast at 475 for 7 minutes per pound.
Turn oven off and let roast sit in oven 2-1/2 hours. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR DURING THIS 2-1/2 HOUR TIME PERIOD.
Remove and slice. An au jus type gravy can be made with the pan drippings.
To season roast:
McCormick California Style Crushed Garlic. It comes in a 4.25 oz. glass
jar. Or use minced garlic and put in small food processor until like a paste. I use that as a base, put in a couple of tsps. each of rosemary & thyme, some salt, a whole bunch of pepper, and a couple of drops of olive oil just to make it pasty. Mix it all up good, then spread it on outside of the roast, all over the top and sides.
