Roast beast

iheartcooking | Dec 19, 2013 10:01 PM

I was asked to bring roast beef to the family Christmas gathering. I've never made this but I'm pretty confident I can do it with the help of my probe thermometer and my adequate cooking skills.
Now this is kind of dumb but I don't know what cut of meat "roast beef" comes from. Am I right that this isn't the same as pot roast? I hope it doesn't strictly mean prime rib because I don't think it would be appreciated enough to make it worth the expense. Can anyone tell me what sort of beef to buy? And any pointers would be great too.
