Home-Style Roast Beef Recipe

Home-Style Roast Beef Recipe

A very moist roast, this gains richness from the gravy, and the bacon gives it a somewhat different taste. For variety, you can cube the roast and serve it over rice with gravy...or cube and mix it with noodles, gravy and vegetables if you'd like to make it into a casserole.

"Very good roast recipe. I used an 8 lb bone-in prime rib roast, which would have been enough for 10-15 people, and it took about 3 hrs. However, the onions and bacon looked done after 2 hrs and overdone at 3, so I wouldn't put them on the roast until it has baked an hr. This recipe is great because it makes its own gravy - no messing around at the last minute making lumpy gravy from drippings. This will definitely go in my recipe rotation."

"Made this for Thanksgiving last year, followed the recipe exactly using the same cut of meat It was a perfect hit, So when I was asked to cook for our Church Ministers dinner I cooked this and I received rave reviews. So I am cooking it again this year."

"I made this and bought the exact cut of meat (bottom round roast - which is twice the cost compared to the roast cut that I usually buy) and the meat was not tender at all. The taste of the juices and bacon and onion were great - flavor was all great - but the meat just was not tender what-so-ever.....I would recommend buying the roast meat that you are most comfortable with for this recipe...."
