Pro Tips To Make This Recipe

  • Quality of Beef: Always choose a top round roast when making this recipe. The quality of the beef is crucial for the final taste of your dish.
  • Preparation: Prepare the roast by rubbing it with kosher salt and letting it sit in the fridge for 1-24 hours. This will help to tenderize the meat and enhance its flavor.
  • Cooking Method: Brown the roast in oil on all sides before slow-roasting. This will seal in the juices and give your roast a beautiful, rich color.
  • Cooking Time: Using an Infrared cooking thermometer, roast beef at a settled temperature and for the directed time. Excessive heat can make the roast dry and chewy, eventually losing its flavor and tenderness.
  • Gravy: Make the gravy with the reserved drippings. This will give your gravy a deep, meaty flavor that can’t be beaten. You can thicken this gravy using all-purpose flour or cornstarch.
  • Resting Time: Once the roast is done, let it rest before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the roast, resulting in moister and more flavorful meat.
