Making a classic beef roast along with an indication of calories. Keep in mind that the calorie count may vary based on the specific ingredients and portion sizes you use.


Ingredients:

  • 3-4 pounds beef roast (such as prime rib or sirloin)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 1 cup red wine (optional)

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (for gravy)


Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).

  1. Prepare the Beef:

  • Pat the beef roast dry with paper towels.

  • Season the roast generously with salt and pepper.

  1. Sear the Beef:

  • In an oven-safe pan or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

  • Sear the beef on all sides until browned.

  1. Add Aromatics:

  • Add minced garlic, chopped rosemary, and thyme to the pan.

  • Cook for 1-2 minutes until the herbs are fragrant.

  1. Deglaze the Pan:
