Top Round Roast
We’ve been using this cut at our Nashville shop along with our All Things Roast seasoning to make amazing roast beef for years, and decided it’s time to let you all make your own awesome roast beef sandwiches at home. This large roast is cut from the round, a section of the beef that is lean and flavorful. To ensure your roast doesn’t dry out, we encourage you to cook it hot and fast before slicing thin. While we love this cut for homemade deli meat, it's also delicious served hot over potatoes, topped with jus or gravy.
The Top Round Roast is, as the name implies, cut from the top part of the beef’s round section. Unlike most butchers we trim this cut aggressively to remove all of the side muscles and connective tissue. This roast is all lean meat, ready for the best roast beef you’ve ever had.
This cut is best cooked hot and fast, and served rare. Season with coarse salt and pepper and start in an oven set to 500°F. After 15 minutes, turn the temperature down to 225°F and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 120°F. Rest for 10-15 minutes, or cool completely, before slicing as thin as your knives allow.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
