Roast Beef with Fresh Herbs and Basil Olive Oil

This roast beef with fresh herbs and basil olive oil recipe is perfect for those thinly sliced rounds of beef tucked neatly into a homemade hero roll.


  • 1 1/2- pound beef eye of round roast
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup mix of finely chopped rosemary mint and tarragon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Basil Infused Olive Oil


  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Generously coat the roast with half of the chopped herb mixture and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a large ovenproof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over moderately high heat. Add the roast and lightly brown it on all sides, about 3 minutes. Wipe out the skillet, return the meat to it and roast in the oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 140 degrees F., about 25 minutes. Transfer the roast to a cutting board and season again with salt and pepper. Cover loosely with foil and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • Thinly slice the roast and drizzle each portion with 1/2 tablespoon basil oil. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup chopped herbs and serve.
