4. Place into a roasting pan and bake at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, then lower the temperature to 415 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for 1 more hour. I personally don’t like rare meat so I cook it just until the pink is almost gone (about 145-150 degrees Fahrenheit). But if your prefer medium rare meat, cook the beef until it reaches 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit.
