  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 3 pounds eye of round
  • 1 cup beef stock or reduced-sodium beef broth


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with water; bring to a boil, and add 1 teaspoon salt. Cook until potatoes are slightly soft on the outside, about 12 minutes. Drain; return to pan. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Shake pan to soften edges.

  2. Pour oil in a large roasting pan; place in oven. On a plate, mix together flour, dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dredge beef in flour mixture, turning to coat all sides.

  3. Transfer potatoes to hot roasting pan; toss to coat. Place beef in center of pan; roll in oil, leaving fat side up. Roast until beef is 120 degrees. 40 to 45 minutes. Turn potatoes after 15 minutes of cooking.

  4. Remove potatoes and beef. Cover; let beef rest about 20 minutes before slicing thinly to allow temperature to reach 135 to 140 degrees for medium-rare.

  5. Place roasting pan over medium heat. Add broth; simmer, scraping bottom of pan, about 1 1/2 minutes. Serve sauce with beef and potatoes.
