How to Cook a Beef Roast With Onion Soup

Save

If prepared correctly, beef roast is a tender cut of meat to serve at lunch or dinner. There are many methods of preparing beef roast, including coating the meat with a crispy layer of onion soup mix. The onion soup mix combines with the juices of the beef while it roasts, infusing the meat with a rich flavor. Only a few ingredients are required for beef roast with onion soup. Allow for at least two and a half hours of preparation time, and 40 minutes of bake time. A basic beef roast with onion soup recipe yields over 12 servings.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 lb. beef roast
  • 2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1 packet French onion soup mix
  • Aluminum foil
  • Meat thermometer
  • Place a 2 lb. beef roast on a working surface. Allow to set for two hours for it to come to room temperature.

  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Rub the outside of the roast with 2 tbsp. butter or margarine. Sprinkle one packet French onion soup mix over the roast. Use your fingers to press the onion soup mix into the butter, covering the roast's entire surface.

  • Wrap the roast in a layer of aluminum foil and place in a pan in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes before removing it from the oven. Leave the wrapped roast to set for five minutes after taking it out of the oven.

  • Unwrap the roast and use a meat thermometer to test its internal temperature. If it is not at least 135 degrees Fahrenheit, re-wrap the roast and bake in five-minute increments.

    Serve while hot.

Tips & Warnings

  • Any leftover beef roast will make tasty sandwiches if thinly sliced. When re-heating, cover the meat with a damp paper towel in the microwave to keep it from drying out.
