Home-Style Roast Beef
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 2-1/2 hours + standing
Very good roast recipe. I used an 8 lb bone-in prime rib roast, which would have been enough for 10-15 people, and it took about 3 hrs. However, the onions and bacon looked done after 2 hrs and overdone at 3, so I wouldn't put them on the roast until it has baked an hr. This recipe is great because it makes its own gravy - no messing around at the last minute making lumpy gravy from drippings. This will definitely go in my recipe rotation.
Made this for Thanksgiving last year, followed the recipe exactly using the same cut of meat It was a perfect hit, So when I was asked to cook for our Church Ministers Dinner I cooked this and I received rave reviews. So I am cooking it again this year.
fabulous! Pleased every picky eater in my house and the neighbour loved the remaining marinade. We will add this to our list of regular meals.
I made this and bought the exact cut of meat (bottom round roast - which is twice the cost compared to the roast cut that I usually buy) and the meat was not tender at all. The taste of the juices and bacon and onion were great - flavor was all great - but the meat just was not tender what-so-ever.....I would recommend buying the roast meat that you are most comfortable with for this recipe....
