The round roast is the perfect cut for the oven. Roast it until rare and slice for a classic dinner, but make sure you leave some leftovers for roast beef sandwiches the next day (or two). We served a version of this 14-day dry aged roast beef at Music City Food and Wine Festival this past year, and people lost their minds!
The round is the back leg of the beef, and is one solid/hard-working muscle. Round roasts are extremely lean pieces of meat without much marbling or fat. This cut is most flavorful when cooked very rare.
The round roast is the perfect oven roasting meat. Our favorite way to roast this cut is to preheat your oven to 500 degrees, and roast for 10 minutes. Then drop your oven temperature to 225 degrees and cook until internal temp is 125 degrees. Let it rest, and slice as thin as you can (the thinner the better). This is our favorite method for making our deli roast beef for the shop in Nashville.
