Strange way to cook a roast beef but it worked very well. I took mine out at 135 degrees, I like it bloody!
1 (3 pound) beef eye of round roast
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Season the roast with salt and pepper and place in a roasting pan or baking dish. Do not cover or add water.
Place the roast in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). Roast for 21 minutes (seven minutes per pound) then turn off the oven and let the roast sit in the hot oven for 2 1/2 hours. Do not open the door at all during this time!
Remove the roast from the oven, the internal temperature should have reacreached at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees C). Carve into thin slices to serve.
Spice it up, I also used some garlic powder.
I was impressed, it came out great!!! A killer crust and bloody tender middle.
