I can’t believe it’s almost December already. Where did this year go?? Cooler months call for comfort food like meat and potatoes. You know the ‘stick to your ribs’ kind of a meal like this Horseradish, Garlic & Rosemary Encrusted Roast Beef.

I definitely tend to cook differently in the fall/winter months vs. the spring/summer; as I’m sure most of you do as well. When the weather starts to get cooler, my family and I long for comfort food and this recipe is simple and one of our favorites.  In fact, I originally posted this recipe in 2011 and the picture wasn’t the greatest, but even though I make this recipe at least once, maybe twice a season, it gets eaten so fast I haven’t had the chance to snap a new picture.

This year, I decided to make this roast beef during the week because I try not to work on weekends and that means no photographing our food! My family was pleasantly surprised when I announced that we were having one of their favorite meals on a Tuesday.

Roast Beef topped with a mixture of horseradish, garlic, and fresh rosemary is the perfect meal for a Sunday afternoon.To make this recipe you’ll need a beef eye of round roast; which is a very lean cut of beef and often times on sale at your butcher or grocery store, garlic, prepared horseradish, fresh rosemary, extra virgin olive oil, Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine your garlic, horseradish, rosemary, oil, salt and pepper and mix until it forms a paste. Place your roast in a roasting pan and brush the mixture on top of the meat. Add water, beef broth or red wine to the bottom of your pan which will catch the drippings and allow you to make a gravy if you choose to.

My family likes our beef medium so for a 2 1/2 lb. roast, this took approximately 1 hour. I don’t baste it while it’s cooking so the horseradish mixture forms a crispy crust. Once you take your roast out of the oven, allow it to rest for 10 minutes before carving to allow the juices to evenly distribute. Just look at that horseradish crust! It tastes even better when you can get a mouthful with every bite…YUM!!

This Horseradish, Garlic & Rosemary Encrusted Roast Beef is so flavorful, I don’t make a gravy to go with it. However, if you prefer to have gravy, heat the pan drippings in a small saucepan, combine equal parts of cold water and cornstarch (1-2 tbsp. of each should do) and add to the pan; then whisk until the gravy has thickened.

Now you can’t have roast beef without mashed potatoes (well at least not in this house) so I made Sam’s Mashed Potatoes along with Creamed Spinach (both recipes are copycats from The Capital Grille) to go with our dinner and man was my family happy that night!

This Horseradish, Garlic & Rosemary Encrusted Roast Beef was entirely too large for my family of four, but I prefer having leftovers so I can utilize the meat in other meals like beef noodle soup  or Roast Beef & Asiago Panini sandwiches. ~Enjoy!

    Yum, your roast beef looks great! I haven’t made roast beef in forever, I think you might have motivated me to make some soon 🙂

    I’ve never tried it with a bone in roast but I think it should work just fine. I would use the same rub recipe but use the instructions in the link below to cut the bones away from the roast and error them with kitchen string. The cooking time might be longer too so depend on a meat thermometer rather than the time. This was an amazing recipe for the prime rib roast. It was extremely easy to make and my family loved it.
