Full Answer

Beef roasts should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure food safety. Insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the roast, away from any fat, to check the temperature. Adding 1 to 2 cups of beef broth or stock and some vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes and onions, during the cooking process enhances the flavor of the roast and creates a rich broth that can be used to make gravy.
