The PERFECT Roast!


Preheat oven 30 minutes before cooking roast to 500 degrees.

Place seasoned roast on foil, wrap tightly to form a packet.

Place on cookie sheet.

Place roast in oven and cook for 6 minutes per pound of roast!  Example: 3lb roast will cook for 18 minutes.

Shut off oven after cooking time is up.


Allow your roast to sit for 2 hours.

After 2 hours, remove roast, open foil packet, and you will have the most perfectly cooked, tender & juicy roast!
