How long to cook in the oven? That is easy!
This method is
foolproof AND very accurate, it will always be perfect! Multiply the total poundage by 5 minutes. Be as accurate as
Example: the total weight of the meat is 5.53 pounds. Multiply 5.53 (pounds)
times 5 (minutes) which
equals = 27.65. This means it will cook in the oven for 27.65 minutes
or almost 28 minutes at 500 degrees. After 27.65 minutes, immediately turn oven temperature
off, set the timer for 2 hours and do not let anyone open
the oven door for 2 hours, the roast is still cooking.
Roasting your meat with this method will produce the perfection you are looking for, rare to medium rare,
the way it should be with a crispy outer crust. If you prefer more well done, leave meat in the oven a little longer.
Serve with the au jus and horseradish sauce.
