Don’t be intimated by the thought of cooking a beef roast. The term roast beef typically refers to a beef roast that has been cooked in the oven. The key to tender and tasty roast beef is plenty of marbling. That’s why I look for the Certified Angus Beef brand. For the best roast beef sandwiches, look for a round roast. Cuts from a round roast have the right texture and it’s easy to cut large round slices that are perfect for sandwiches.

To roast your round roast perfectly, heat the oven to 500F. Cook for 5 minutes per pound. Turn off the oven. Do NOT open the oven for two hours.

This Herb Rubbed Top Round Roast is the perfect way to cook a roast for this roast beef sandwich. If you’d like to try smaller sandwiches for your guests, these Grilled Sirloin Mini Sandwiches sound amazing too. They are a great choice for those that like to serve a variety of finger foods at their tailgating parties.

Make sure that you stock up on tailgating essentials for your football party:

    I love a good roast! And what is more of a crowd pleaser than roast beef sammies. Yum!
  2. It's funny that I am seeing this because I've been craving roast beef for a couple of days now.
  3. The title is 'how to roast beef' but I don't see instructions anywhere on roasting the beef, just a recipe for assembling the sandwich.
  4. That looks delicious. I'll skip the horseradish though!
  5. I'm not that confident making a meat dish since I was a vegan and vegetarian for so many years. Getting an Instant Pot changed all that though and it's really helping me try new meat recipes. I'm still not a big meat eater myself but now I stop and read meat posts like these! I want to be able to prep a nice meat dish for company or family, so these beef tips help.
