4 lb roast, we used Certified Piedmontese Dynasty Eye of Round Roast
5 cloves garlic, cut thinly
2 tbsp dried rosemary
Kosher salt, to taste
Fresh cracked pepper, to taste
If frozen, remove your roast from the freezer at least 24 hours before to thaw overnight in the fridge. Remove your roast 1 from the fridge 1 hour before cooking and set on counter.
Preheat the oven to 475 F.
Pat dry your roast and evenly pierce ½-inch deep holes into the entire roast with a sharp knife.
Insert sliced garlic in each pole, pushing all the way in.
Lightly coat your roast with olive oil and season generously with dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Rub seasonings into the surface of the roast.
Place the beef in a roasting pan with a rack and put in the oven.
Roast until the internal temperature is between 120 F and 125 F for medium-rare. Remove roast from the oven and let it rest covered with foil for at least 30 minutes.
Slice thin and serve. Enjoy!
Properly stored, cooked beef roast will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. Transform your leftover roast beef to an amazing lunch of roast beef sandwich, a cheesy stroganoff, or even a balanced roast beef salad that even the pickiest eater would love!
