Comment on Rosemary Garlic Beef Top Round Roast with Roasted Potatoes by Karen in NH.

^^^ I, too, wish recipes like this gave the amount of time PER POUND. I almost never have a roast that’s exactly the size mentioned in the recipe. This recipe sounds terrific and I think I’ll try it, but I will have to keep checking the roast to make sure it doesn’t over-cook (we like it quite rare!). Thanks!
