Seasoned Roast Recipe

This spectacular roast is the star of any special meal my wife, Linda, and I host. A simple dry rub delicately seasons the tender juicy meat. When we set this entree in front of guests, they rave about it. -Ron Poole, Saluda, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours + standing YIELD:10-12 servings

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-3/4 to 2-3/4 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).

"My mother-in-law makes this nearly every Christmas and I tried it today. Fantastic! Super easy, except for estimating its time-of-completion, so that side dishes will be ready at the same time. I took it our at 140 degrees, let it sit for 15 minutes. The center was medium rare, the ends medium. Perfect and tender!"

"Easy and scrumptious! Recipes like this make you look like a gourmet cook with little effort! Next time I'll try heating the oven to 550 and then immediately turning it down to 350 to sear the roast."

"Delicious! The roast I used was 2.5 pounds. Used a meat thermometer and stopped cooking the roast at 135 degrees amd then let rest, covered for about 20 mins. Absolutly perfect."
