This 500 degree method is fuss-free and works well. The roast will have to stay in the oven for at least 2 hours and the roast should be out of the refrigerator for about 1 hour before roasting, so plan accordingly.


  • 1 boneless round tip roast, about 4 to 5 pounds, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Heat oven to 500°.

Cut slashes in the fat of the beef in a diamond pattern.

Combine the flour, salt, garlic salt, and pepper. Rub the roast all over with the flour mixture.

Put the roast on a rack in a shallow baking pan, put in the oven, and reduce heat to 475°. Roast for 30 minutes, or about 7 minutes per pound. Turn the heat off and leave the roast in the oven for 2 1/2 hours. Do not open the oven until you're ready to carve and serve.

The roast will be medium rare.

Round Tip Roast, Member Fossilbone

This roast turned out wonderful. I was a little concerned about it sitting in the oven for 2 1/2 hours. When I finally opened oven it was cooked to perfection. Will definitely make again
