We’re big fans of a tender, juicy roast, and love the simplicity of a basic Roast Beef. While there are some more intricate methods which include basting, stews and crock pots, we like to keep ours simple by roasting it with a touch of salt and pepper.

I promise you this is the easiest Roast Beef recipe you will ever make, and you will absolutely love how tender and delicious it is! You’ll need to set aside an hour or so for this one, and make sure you have a meat thermometer handy. The key to not over cooking a roast is to use the thermometer and set it for 125 degrees. Thats the magic number which leaves your roast juicy, tender and perfectly delicious. ┬áThis version is naturally gluten-free, and suits the Paleo, Primal Blueprint and GAPS diets just fine. In fact, so long as you’re a meat eater, you’re good with this one!

We like to grill some squash to pair with it, and add some grilled asparagus and toasted pumpkin seeds to a balsamic vinegar and EVOO salad.

So simple. So good.
