I love roasting meats. You see, on a "small family" night, I cook about 3 pounds of meat, and "all of the family" nights require 5 to 6 pounds (boneless, of course). Yes, that's a lot of meat. And, yes, that's why you all have to cut my recipes down to normal sized. But you're here for the roast beef.
This was inspired by my wonderful purchase from Spicebarn.com in December. You can do some amazing things with powdered spices, and I do enjoy Worcestershire sauce. So, with that in mind, off I went to great flavor sensation!
WORCESTERSHIRE ROAST BEEF
1 small eye round roast (about 3 pounds)
1/4 cup salad oil
2 tbsp Worcestershire powder
2 tbsp dried minced onion or 1/4 cup fresh minced onion
10 turns fresh ground pepper
Mix the oil with the onion, pepper and Worcestershire powder, and let stand for about 5 minutes so the flavors meld together. Spread the oil mixture over all surfaces of the eye round roast and place in a small roasting pan. Add 1/4" water to the bottom of the pan, and roast according to your favorite method. I served this with pasta and corn, and there was very little left for lunch sandwiches the next day. (Fortunately for Thor, there was some pasta left over, and he likes it fine.)
