Easy Old-Fashioned Roast Beef with Caramelized Carrots and Potatoes
Why This Recipe Works
We chose a sirloin roast for the main ingredient in our Old-Fashioned Roast Beef recipe because it has big, beefy flavor and enough fat to stay juicy. A two-pronged cooking approach—searing the beef in the roasting pan on the stovetop then moving it to a low oven whose temperature we turned up for the final bit of cooking—gave us a crisp crust and deep color. To make our Old-Fashioned Roast Beef recipe a true one-dish meal, we precooked carrots and potatoes in the microwave, then roasted them with the beef.
