Roast beef is a cut of tender beef that is roasted in the oven. In English cuisine, and by extension in many countries with an Anglo-Saxon tradition such as Australia, roast beef is a very traditional dish, preferably served on Sundays (Sunday roast). Roast beef is usually served with vegetables and potatoes (fried, roasted or mashed), and in the north of England it is traditionally accompanied by Yorkshire pudding.

I’m showing you how to make Classic Roast Beef.
This pepper-crusted roast beef is super simple to make, yet elegant enough to serve for special occasions, the holidays, or even just a Sunday dinner.
3 pounds beef, bottom round roast
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
- Place your oven rack into the bottom or second to bottom slot in your oven, then preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place your roast onto the rack of a roasting pan, this allows the air to circulate underneath for more even cooking, but if you don’t have a roasting pan, you can use just a regular 9×13 pan or a cast iron pan.
- In a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of black pepper, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder.
- Then we’re gonna lather this mixture all over our beef roast.
- Next we’re gonna roast this in our 325 degree oven for somewhere in the 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minute range.
- Your Roast Beef is ready!
