Check your local store – you’ll find several labelled “quick roast” – they cook in half the time of the larger ones.
Mini Weeknight Roasts
An oven roast can now be weeknight fare, thanks to the new beef roasts available in supermarkets. Most of them weigh about 1 lb (500 g) and cook to medium in less than 1 hour. Mini versions of familiar cuts allow you to enjoy a fast healthy dinner that fits into your busy schedule. Work these cuts into your meal planning: sirloin tip, eye of the round, outside round, bottom sirloin tip, rib-eye, strip loin and top sirloin.
Roast Beef Recipe Timing Tip
Remember to choose quick-cooking veggies, such as squash, sweet potatoes or parsnips, to go with these roasts.
