Kate’s Roast Beef

Hands down, one of the easiest meals to make!

3 pound roast beef (the cut is up to you but go for lean with nice marbling) $12.07
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard $0.36
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce $0.12
1 teaspoon red chili flakes $0.23
1 teaspoon onion powder $0.15
1 teaspoon ground sage $0.24
1 teaspoon dried parsley 0.67
1/2 teaspoon paprika $0.08
3 tablespoons canola oil $0.21
Pinch of salt and pepper $0.02

Total Cost   $14.15

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.) Whisk together Dijon, worcestershire sauce, chili flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, sage, parsley, paprika, salt and pepper.

3.) Heat oil in a large oven-proof pot over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, rub mustard mixture over entire roast beef. When oil is hot, place the beef in the pot and sear on all sides, about 3-4 minutes each side.

4.) When the beef is nicely browned on all sides, cover pot with oven-proof lid or aluminum foil. Transfer the pot to the oven and roast 60 – 75 minutes, depending on the size of the roast and how you like it done. 60 minutes or under should give you a roast that’s nicely cooked to medium. To get a better estimate of how long your roast should cook, figure in about 15 minutes per pound.

5.) After taking the roast out of the oven, let it sit for 5 minutes to rest. This will allow the juices to settle and you’ll be left with a much more tender and juicy roast beef because the juices won’t be all over your cutting board!

6.) After resting, slice the beef into 1″ – 1.5″ thick slices.

7.) Serve and enjoy!
