A Holiday Roast Beef

There are many things I love about this time of year, the decorations the food and all of the fabulous Holiday spirit. You know that there is only 54 days until Christmas! I was told that this morning at Mass. I'm like the rest of you the economy is tight and the last thing I want to think about is to go out there and shop. So this meal is great because you will get 3 different meals out of this one roast beef if you play your cards right. Which I plan to post Wednesday and Friday.

A Holiday Roast Beef
1 5-10 pound Roast Beef
5 teaspoons garlic powder
5 Tablespoons Olive Oil some for potatoes some for roast
Salt and Pepper
8 Potatoes pealed and cut
10 -15 potatoes pealed and cut
This is one of my favorite pieces of meat to buy especially during the holidays. I love to make a roast with Oven Roasted potatoes and Oven Roasted Carrots.

TIP OF THE DAY !! The easiest way to cook this is with a meat thermometer. I like the digital ones that you put in the roast prior to cooking. All Clad makes a fabulous one and there are many other company's out there that make them too.

Take Meat drizzle with olive oil until completely covered add Salt pepper and garlic powder until evenly coated. 

Next do the same with Potatoes and Carrots (sorry guys I forgot to take a picture of the carrots), toss until evenly coated.

Bake in oven covered at 325 until thermometer reads 100 degrees uncover meat and cook until it reaches 145 degrees pull out of oven and serve in 20 minutes.

Bon Appetit!
