What is Roasted Beef?
Roasted beef is a delicious beef dish that features marinated slices or cubes of beef, that are then roasted till they're incredibly tender and tasty. It's a hearty, delicious meal that's not only comforting but one that tastes just as good.

It's a quick and easy way of making a delicious family meal that everyone is bound to love!
What Makes This Roasted Beef Recipe Special?
With school in full swing and the holidays around the corner, there is a lot to think about. Luckily, dinner can be easy with this recipe.
This Roasted Beef recipe is one of those much-appreciated, quick solution meals for hectic, pressure-packed days when you're short on time.
It is super quick to chop, throw together, roast in the oven, and serve. If you can plan ahead a bit, marinate the meat for a richer taste, but it's not absolutely necessary when in a tight time crunch.
Roasting beef and vegetables is of the healthiest ways to prepare these two classics. This dish tastes phenomenal, is super easy to make, and disappears fast once it's on the dinner table.
It's the ideal dish because while dinner is in the oven your time is freed up to get other things done and still have a nutritious dinner on the table all at the same time. Win-win for moms for sure!
It is extremely helpful to have recipes such as these on hand that you can whip up in no time on whirlwind weekdays without sacrificing flavor. This hearty meal definitely receives a busy mom's stamp of approval. I am sure you will love it as well.
What Cut of Beef Should I Use to Make Roasted Beef?
The better the cut of beef you use, the better the flavor will be of your roasted beef but it's not strictly necessary to buy expensive cuts at all! You can use eye of round, top round, rump roast, chuck roast, or beef tenderloin for this recipe.
Tenderloin, aka filet mignon, is the most tender part of the cow, and so this is an expensive cut but roast tenderloin has the most buttery texture that's soft and absolutely delicious.
But you can still get incredible results from any cut you have on hand. No matter which one you use, the key is to roast it till it's soft enough to cut with a fork, and it should melt in the mouth when eaten.
You can even make a bone-in roast with this recipe, but it will take longer to roast in the oven. If you feel your roast cut doesn't have enough fat and is very lean, you can roast it with some butter or olive oil.
How to Check Roasted Beef for Doneness
Use a meat thermometer to determine when the roast is done cooking for the most reliable results.
Get it to an internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit for medium-rare, 145 degrees for medium, or 150 degrees for medium well.
How long you cook a roast depends on its size and shape. Follow the instructions in my recipe for the best results!
What You Need to Make Roasted Beef at Home
This is a super easy recipe to make at home and you need simple ingredients to make it. Here's everything you'll need:
For Roast Beef:
- Beef: We'll, first of all, need some beef to make this recipe. Make sure to cut it evenly into strips or cubes so that it roasts evenly.
Mrs. Dash seasoning: This is a great seasoning mix because includes a lot of great spices or dried herbs such as onion powder, marjoram, oregano, rosemary thyme, cayenne pepper, lemon juice powder, etc that go really well with the roast beef and are a great alternative to using fresh herbs.
Seasonings: We'll also need some salt and black pepper to season our delicious beef to the right level.
For Roasted Vegetables:
- Potatoes: No roasted veggie recipe is complete without some potatoes! I've used red russet potatoes in this recipe that are homegrown, but you can use store-bought ones. You can also use yellow potatoes (Yukon Gold) to make this recipe.
- Carrots: Carrots are another veggie that roasts really well! I've used baby carrots here, but you can also use regular carrots! Just make sure to chop them evenly into 1 to 2-inch pieces.
- Broccoli: Broccoli along with carrots and potatoes will make this roasted beef a nice and filling meal.
- Parsley: We'll also need some fresh parsley to garnish our delicious dish.
Mayonnaise: Adding some mayo to your veggies is going to make such a big difference because it'll make it taste richer and better, and the veggies will also roast better. I've used homemade mayonnaise in this recipe to keep it lower in calories, but you can also go for store-bought mayonnaise.
Mrs. Dash seasoning: We'll, again, use this delicious seasoning mix that we also used for the roasted beef.
Sea salt: To season our veggies perfectly, we'll also need some salt.
Garlic: Adding fresh garlic cloves elevates the dish to the next level, giving you veggies that complement the roasted beef perfectly.
How to Make Roasted Beef Step by Step
This is an incredibly easy recipe that you're going to love making even on busy nights! Here's what you need to do step by step to make it at home:
How to Prep Beef for Roasted Beef
Season it with Mrs. Dash seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cover the bowl with a lid and let the meat marinate for 2 - 4 hours in the fridge. You don't have to marinate it for that long if you're short on time.
How to Prep Veggies for Roasted Beef
Preheat the oven to 400 F (204 C).
Start by rinsing broccoli, cutting it into florets, and placing it into a large bowl.
Next, rinse and scrub the potato with a vegetable brush. Cut the potato into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes, and add to broccoli florets.
Then rinse baby carrots and add to the potato and broccoli florets. Add mayonnaise, Mrs. Dash seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.
This step is optional. Separate broccoli from potatoes and carrots. I personally prefer to add broccoli halfway through roasting time because we like broccoli a bit crunchy.
Place vegetables in a 13 x 18 baking sheet or roasting pan lined with parchment paper. Add seasoned meat and bake for 20 minutes at 400 F (204 C).
Remove the pan from the oven. Add broccoli florets and roast for additional 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve hot and fresh.
How to Store Leftover Roast Beef
If you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can also freeze the roasted beef for up to 3 months!
A great way to use any leftovers you might have is to use them in sandwiches the next day! Quick and easy lunch that tastes incredible!
