  • 3-3 1/2 pound round tip or eye of round roast
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1-2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 pounds red or Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
  • 8 medium carrots, peeled and cut into one-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into one-inch wedges
  • 6-8 whole cloves garlic


Bring roast to room temperature. Use a mortar and pestle or spice grinder to grind bay leaves to a coarse powder and combine in a small bowl with salt and pepper. Add just enough olive oil to make a paste. Rub over roast. Heat oven to 350°F. Place vegetables and garlic in a roasting pan, drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and place in oven. Meanwhile, heat a large sauté pan to medium-high and coat lightly with oil. Brown roast well on all sides. Place roast in roasting pan with vegetables. Roast about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until desired doneness (use a meat thermometer and remove from oven 5-10 degrees below desired temperature). When roast is done, remove from pan and cover loosely with foil for 10-15 minutes. If necessary, return vegetables to oven to finish cooking while roast rests. Slice roast thinly against the grain and serve with vegetables.
