3 pound roast beef (sirloin tip or any boneless beef roast)
- Rub the roast with oil.
- Bake on open oven rack (yes, the oven rack) in a preheated 300 degree oven for 1 hour. Place a cookie sheet one or two racks down to catch the drippings.
- Without opening the door, reduce the heat to 200 degrees and continue baking for 3 to 4 more hours.
