Eye round roast (beef)
Extra virgin olive oil
Place roast in a roasting pan. Rub with olive oil, generously season with salt and pepper. Tent with foil and let sit at room temp for about an hour.
Pre heat oven to 500 deg.
Remove foil tent, place roast in oven for 5 mins per pound of meat. 4lbs would be 20 mins. Roast for the applicable amount of time, turn oven off and let meat finish cooking for one hour. Do NOT open the oven after the heat is turned off. When the hour is up, you can slice immediately, it has rested enough.
