I LOVE LOVE LOVE roast beef sandwiches. I rarely buy it because to find the good stuff, you need to visit an actual deli. This is non-existent here in small town Kentucky and all the prepackaged options are overcooked and bland. Today I just made my own…. It’s easier than I expected and the outcome was amazing! Recipe source.
3 lb. rump roast
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and black pepper
-Pat roast dry with paper towel.
-Salt & pepper all sides of roast and mix together garlic and onion powder in small bowl.
-Coat with olive oil then massage seasoning mixture into roast, coating all sides.
-Let rest on countertop until room temperature. This took about an hour for me, I checked the temp after 30 minutes. While waiting, preheat oven to 200 degrees.
-Place roast on a rack in a roasting pan and cook for 3-4 hours, or until 130 degrees. Mine was finished at 3 hours on the dot.
-Remove roast and tent with foil. Allow to rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
