At Bentley’s Roast Beef, we proudly host the best roast beef in New Hampshire, however, we know that it’s not always possible to come visit us.

Because of that, we’re giving you a simple, at home recipe to create a roast that will undoubtedly have your family going back for more. We hope you enjoy, celebrate, and have a very happy holiday season!



  • 3 Pound Eye Roast
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Salt to Taste
  • Minced Garlic
  • Thyme and Rosemary
  • Onion Slices



You’ll want to begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Place your roast in a pan and generously season it to taste. Further, you can add broth, water, or wine to the bottom of your roasting pan to encourage a tender, moist roast.

Once seasoned and your oven has reached the proper temperature, place your roast in the oven, uncovered, and cook for approximately 20 minutes per pound. Depending on how your oven cooks, you may want to baste your roast occasionally with drippings. However, this enables your oven heat to escape, so it’s always best to keep it closed.

An alternative is to lower the temperature to 250 degrees after 45 minutes of cooking to allow for a slower cook, reducing the chances of your roast from becoming dry.


Know your oven well.

We can not stress enough that every oven is different. While you can follow recipes and suggestions, not understanding your oven can ruin your meal.


Invest in a meat thermometer.

Remember, once you remove your roast from the oven, it will continue to cook. Rule of thumb is to remove your roast five to ten degrees below the desired temperature (we recommend a final temperature of 145 degrees). Allow your roast to sit covered, achieving the ideal temp and doneness.


Temperatures versus Wellness

Here is a general guide to temperatures and gaging how your beef is cooked:

  • 130 – 135 degrees: Medium Rare
  • 140 – 145 degrees: Medium
  • 150 – 155 degrees: Medium Well
  • 160 degrees: Well Done


Make sure your knives are ready!

Once ready, it’s time to slice your roast. The key to a tender roast beef is slicing it thin. Make sure your knives are sharp before having a go. This will help you get the long, thin slices of tender beef you’re hoping for!


While this may be exciting for some, cooking your own roast is intimidating to others! If that’s you, it’s time to stop into Bentley’s for the best roast beef in New Hampshire!
