Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
- Beef roast, preferably a nice cut. (I will be using a 4 lb. roast for this example.)
- Flour
- Seasonings of choice (e.g. salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder)

Directions:
Directions:
- Let beef reach room temperature. (This is *very* important.)
- Combine flour, seasonings in a large plastic bag.
- Preheat oven to 500F.
- Place roast in bag and toss with seasonings until coated. Take roast out of bag and set aside.
- Place roast in ungreased pan and cook for 5 minutes per pound at 500F. (For this example it would be 20 minutes.)
- Turn off oven.
- Leave roast in the oven for 2 hours with heat off.
- Do not open the oven door. (Again, this is *very* important.)
- Remove roast from the oven.

Roast will be deli-style rare. If you prefer your beef less rare, cook for 5 1/2 minutes per pound. (For this example, the roast would have remained in the 500F oven for 22 minutes.)
