Forget the dry, chewy meat you may have been served as a child — today’s roast beef is tender, juicy and packed with flavor. Whether you dress them up with herbs and sauces or you let the natural taste of the beef speak for itself, roasts will wow your family and guests alike, and most are simple to prepare. Plus, while fancy steak dinners may be pricey, roast beef allows you to enjoy a more budget-friendly cut of meat without sacrificing flavor or texture.

Read on below to find Food Network’s top-five roast beef recipes from Giada De Laurentiis, Rachael Ray, Trisha Yearwood and more of your favorite chefs.

4: Italian Roast Beef

Follow Rachael’s lead and dot the beef with garlic cloves before letting it simmer in a rosemary-white wine sauce. She serves the roast alongside tender vegetables and buttery pasta to make it a complete meal.
