Cook's Notes

This roast beef is at its most delicious when cooked to medium-rare and sliced very thin, against the grain.

    Made this last night. Even by patting on the gremolata, which the rub resembled, it would not adhere to the roast. It made a huge mess in the roasting pan. There was more in the pan than on the roast. Will stick with my own way if roasting a top round roast. I give it 1 star. Folks pass on this recipe.

    I made this with a bit of reluctance since it only has 3 stars and not enough comments to tell me why it was averaging that. Well, I created an account specifically to leave a comment to warn others! I did not like this at all and should have went with my gut in step 1; I thought it was odd that it didn't call for seasoning the roast, only the rub. Spooning the rub on top of the roast did nothing to season the meat. 10 minutes is also too long for the browning time. I was quite disappointed.

    This was delicious. High class restaurant quality with little work. Mincing the garlic took the most time. I made it with a horseradish dill sauce that went perfectly! Even my picky 8 yr old loved it (besides the "pine needles".)

    This was FABULOUS! Tons of flavor from a rather mundane cut of meat... and I discovered too late that I was out of horseradish so I just had to make a pan sauce so we didn't even get to experience that part! The potatoes are the star here, though, we could NOT stop eating them! Super easy & dinner party worthy.
