To see if the beef is cooked to your liking insert a skewer into the thickest part and press out some juices. The red, pink or clear color will indicate how much the beef has cooked. Remember cooking times do vary. The best way to tell how well done your roast beef is, is to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature.
