PictureHigh Temp Roast
This is a great recipe for your first week home with a newborn.  It is 10 minutes to prep and it goes and stays in the oven. 

This recipe is great on nights when we have lots of after school activities.  I can start cooking, turn it off and go (if you have a "stop cooking timer" on your oven, you can go even sooner;). Dinner is waiting when we get home.  Toss together a salad or a couple of sides and done.

While the idea of cooking at such high temperature can be nerve-racking, have faith.  You will love it!  The most important part of this is NOT OPENING OVEN.


* 3-5 lb Roast Beef at room temperature
* Seasoning Rub of choice (McCormicks has a few)
*  Combine 1 Tbsp salt, 2 tsp Pepper and 1 c all-purpose flour


To start, I wrap my roasting pan with foil for easy clean-up.  You could also use a foil roasting pan from the grocery store, so you can just throw it away.  I also tent the roast with foil to avoid splatter and the rub starting to smoke at the high temp.

1  Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
2  Start with roast at room temp.
3  Choose your favorite rub and rub on all sides of roast
4  Place in oven and roast at 5 minutes per pound for rare or 7 minutes for more well done. 
5  When time is up, turn oven off,  DO NOT OPEN OVEN OR REMOVE ROAST.
6  Let oven completely cool (2 hours)
7  When you are ready, remove roast, slice thin and enjoy.
