Bottom Round Roast Recipe

Try this comforting, classic bottom round roast recipe, seasoned with garlic, basil, thyme, and parsley. With just 10 minutes of prep, this meal is perfect for a Sunday roast and using the leftovers throughout the week.

A bottom round roast is best for roasting or slow-cooking and slicing thin.  This cut comes from the primal section from the rump and hind legs. The muscles in this area are used for movement, so the beef is leaner and less tender.

This roast is best prepared roasted in the oven with a braising liquid or slow-cooked in a crockpot.  Because it is lean meat, you won’t get the fall-apart texture that you would with a cross-rib roast or chuck roast.

However, this is a great slicing roast – so it’s perfect for a Sunday roast and for making roast beef sandwiches.

Read our guide on beef roast cuts so you know which roast to buy and how to prepare it from your local Safeway.   

Safeway’s Denver division only offers USDA Choice Colorado Angus Beef for its roasts and steaks, so you can be assured your meat is always fresh and locally sourced. 

Recipe for Bottom Round Roast with Garlic Herb Crust

  • 1 boneless beef round rump roast or beef bottom round roast (3 to 4 lbs.)
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic-pepper seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

How to Cook a Bottom Round Roast

Heat oven to 325°. Combine rub ingredients: press onto beef roast.

Place the roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan with the fat side up.

Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so the tip is centered in the thickest part of beef.

Do not add water or cover. Roast in 325° oven for 1 ½ to 2 hours for medium-rare doneness – you want it to be 135° when measured with a meat thermometer in the center.

Remove the roast from the oven and cover with foil.   Let the roast rest for 15 to 20 minutes for the juices to redistribute through the meat.

If you prefer your roast cooked to medium, you can let it cook until 140 degrees.  The roast will rise about 10 degrees while resting, so keep that in mind when determining the doneness of your roast. 

What to Serve with a Bottom Round Roast

Lemony Greek-style oven-roasted potatoes are my go-to because they cook in the oven with the roast and take about 10 minutes to prepare. 

Additionally, you can serve with rice pilaf, mashed potatoes, pasta, steamed or roasted vegetables, and a salad.   Here are some options.
