The Perfect Roast

"This has been used in our family for over 30 years.  And it has never ever failed.  I especially love this for Prime Rib." - Internet subscriber to About.com Home Coooking Forum.

Any size Roast on a rack

salt and pepper to taste.

Season with Minced Garlic, Garlic Powder or Garlic Salt. (I also use optional seasonings like rosemary . . whatever you like, etc.)

Place beef in roasting pan uncovered and put in 375 degree oven for one hour AND THEN TURN OFF.  DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR FOR ANYTHING!  Before serving, turn oven on to 300 degrees.

45 MINUTES before serving the roast will be RARE DONE

50 MINUTES before serving the roast will be MEDIUM DONE

55 MINUTES before serving the roast will be WELL DONE.

Let sit 15 minutes before carving.
