1/2 tbsp. black pepper

You can roast this cut of beef easily with just a few ingredients. Cut it into steaks after cooking. You will find that cooking this way will give you individual steaks that are moist, tender and juicy.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the roast in a roasting pan. Make sure the fat side is facing up.
Place 1 tbsp. olive oil in a bowl. Coat the entire roast with the olive oil using a basting brush.
Measure 1 tbsp. salt into a bowl. Add 1/2 tbsp. black pepper. Mix them together evenly.
Sprinkle the roast with the salt and pepper. You can use your fingers.
Sear the roast for 12 minutes to get a nice brown crust and add texture and flavor to the roast. Take the roast out of the oven.
Reduce the heat to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Continue cooking the roast, checking the temperature of the roast after 20 minutes. The USDA states the safe internal temperature is 145 degrees Fahrenheit. A roast with this temperature will be medium-rare.
Cook the roast longer if you want medium or well-done meat. A medium roast has an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit. A well-done roast has an internal temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the roast sit for 15 minutes after you remove it from the oven. This will retain the juices and keep the inside moist. Cut the roast across the grain. The USDA states the best way to thaw beef is in the refrigerator. Thawed beef is safe for up to five days in the refrigerator.
