This flavorful rub for the beef roast is delicious and much lower in sodium than most purchased rubs. Try it on pork tenderloin or chicken breasts.

  • 1 3 to 3½-pound beef eye of round roast
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Garlic cloves and/or fresh herb (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Trim the fat from roast. Lightly coat roast with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine kosher salt, Italian seasoning, sage, minced garlic, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Sprinkle the herb mixture evenly over all sides of the meat; rub in with your fingers.
  2. Place meat on a rack in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center of roast. Roast, uncovered, for 1- ¾ to 2 hours or until thermometer registers 135°F (it is not recommended to roast an eye of round roast past medium-rare doneness).
  3. Cover meat with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Temperature of the meat after standing should be 145°F. Thinly slice meat to serve (see Tip). If desired, garnish with garlic cloves and/or fresh herb.
  • Tip: Slice any leftover meat and use to make sandwiches the next day.
