Recipe: Easy Beef Top Round Sunday Dinner Roast
Prep Time
Cooking Time
Total Time
It takes just a few minutes to prep and then the beef is roasted dry for a few hours. Super simple! Use fresh herbs (use 1-1/2 times the measurements) if you have them, but dry works well also. The measurements below are for dried. Ingredients
Yield: 6
  • 2 lb top round roast (tied or not)
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp rosemary
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp ground red pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 325 f
  2. In a small bowl, combine seasonings
  3. Rub the seasoning mixture on all sides of the roast
  4. Place the roast in a pan on a rack (to keep it from cooking in the juices that form) in a shallow roasting pan. Lightly spray the rack with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Place the meat fat side up on the rack. Do not add liquids and do not cover the pan.
  6. Roast for 1-1/2 hrs. Check for doneness with a thermometer: 140 F medium-rare; 155 F medium; 180 F well.
  7. Remove from oven and let stand at least 10 minutes before carving. Cover with foil to keep warm.
