I put it in the oven at 400° for 15 or 20 minutes, then turn it down to 325° and roast for 30 minutes per pound. All it does is end up tough, chewy, and well-done.

Why does my roast beef turn out tough?
Beef has a lot of collagen in it, and that’s what makes it tuff. If you cook it fast, the collagen contracts, and squeezes out some of the moisture. On the other hand, if you cook it real slow, the collagen can disolve/melt, and it actually adds to the mouth feel.
Do you cook beef with the net on?
Do you cook beef roast with netting on? Leave it on. The idea behind the netting is to hold the roast in a firm and tight hold while it cooks so the meat does not fall apart or loosen up and spread. Assuming cotton, you just sear your roast with the netting on and then drop it into the oven.
