Lean outside round roast (aka bottom round) is tender and flavourful when you dry roast it on low heat.
Ingredients
  • 1 outside round beef roast, 3 pounds (1.4 kg)
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 2-3 tsp kosher salt
  • Fresh veggies in several colours, cut in bite sized pieces
Instructions
  1. Remove roast from fridge two hours ahead. Salt all over with 2-3 teaspoons salt. Pour 2 tablespoons oil on the roast and rub in. Wipe the bottom and lower sides of a Dutch oven with another tablespoon of oil. Place roast in the Dutch oven uncovered, and leave on the counter. Twenty minutes before cooking, heat oven to 250 F. Move rack to middle of oven.
  2. Place roast in middle of oven, uncovered. Set timer for 45 minutes. Flip roast over and brush 1 tablespoon of oil on top. Return to oven for 30 minutes. Check internal temperature by spearing the probe lengthwise into the roast and ensuring that the probe is right in the middle. You want 131 F. (Temperature will rise to around 136 F while roast rests.) If roast is not hot enough, return to oven for 10 minutes at a time.
  3. Remove roast from oven when internal temperature reaches 131 F. Place on board to cool. Thinly slice roast when it is cool.
  4. Steam veggies for up to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and spread out to cool.
  5. Roll beef and cooled veggies together to make little bundles. Cover and refrigerate. Make everything up to this step the day before your party, if you'd like.
  6. On party day, make Yorkshire puddings. Set aside until just before serving. To serve, reheat the Yorkshire puddings at 300 F for approximately 15 minutes until fragrant and crispy. Place on serving platter beside beef & veggie bundles.
Notes
Cut the beef as thin as you can after it cools. Use an electric slicer if you have one.
Variation: Go for full-size Yorkshire puddings to save time, or if your guests have bigger appetites.
