Step 1

Marinate meat overnight

Preheat the oven to 500F

Place the roast on a rack in roasting pan. Pour the marinade and 1 cup of water in the bottom of the pan.

Reduce the oven temperature to 475 F Roast for 20 minutes then turn off the oven and let the roast sit in the hot oven for 2 1/2 hours. Do NOT open the door at all during this time!

Remove the roast from the oven. Allow to rest about 20 mins before carving.

Meanwhile, make the gravy. Add enough water to the pan drippings to make a cup of liquid. Mix 1 - 2 tbsp of Bisto gravy mix with a tbsp of cold water. Add to juices to the Bisto in a small saucepan and mix thoroughly before gently heating to a boil.

Works well with all cuts of beef both tender cuts and less tender cuts such as rump or round roasts
