Since 2012 I quit eating processed meats because those we’re hurting my stomach, however, I understand the need of the protein intake and the practicity of havering a protein source available at any time, there is when the roas beef came into my life, this is a super easy recipe and ensures you a healthier protein source by being les processed, and very versatile as the herbs mixture that you rub the beef with.
A pice of eye of round ( 5 to 6 lbs)
1 tablespoon of kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon of dried basil
Special equipment: Roasting pan, Meat Thermometer.
Put the meat over the rack at the roasting pan and rub it with the salt and leave it resting for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 °F
Put the pepper, basil and thyme on a small bowl, mix it all together and sprinkle all over the beef.
Place it in the oven for at least 45 minutes until the meat temperature reach 140° F to 145 °F for medium and to 150 °F to have it a little bit cooked, it’s very important not to overcook the beef because if can be very dry.
Once done leave it to rest and keep in the fridge, slice it every time you need it. It last up to one week in the fridge.
For a better duration every time that you used, drain the fluids.
