Okay,  there’s nothing better than going to a good deli and getting a roast beef sandmich. You know the one I mean .. piled high on good rye bread alittle mayo ,  alittle horseradish and a kosher pickle and a pile of  pink beef …………UUUUMMMM !!!!!!!.

Not so hard to make

3.5 lb. eye of round – this is the first trick to making it good

meat thermometer

extra virgin olive oil – as always

1 tbsp.    fresh cracked pepper – as always

1 tbsp.   kosher salt

1 tbsp.  onion powder

1 tbsp.  garlic powder

Turn oven up to 500′   lie a roasting pan with foil and put a roasting rack in it

Rinse  roast and pat dry. Pour a little oil on the roast and rub all over to coat.

Mix salt and spices together and sprinkle on a sheet of foil. Roll roast in spices until completely covered. place roast on rack and put in oven.

Roast at 500 for 20 minutes then drop oven temp to 300 for about 30 minutes.

Take roast out of the oven at 115 and tent with foil . It will continue to cook a little

120′  –  rare – THE ONLY WAY IT SHOULD BE     –    FOR TRUE LOVERS OF DELI ROAST BEEF

130  is medium –  for  the rest of you

Let rest 20 min. you can slice it now or put it in the freezer for 20 min and slice it across the grain. Putting it in the freezer stiffen it up and you can slice it even thinner.

Use a really sharp knife and slice as thin as possible.

Eat and Enjoy!
