First try at Roast Beef looking good so far.

  1. So far I have made chicken and pork now for my first shot of beef.  I love me some sammies and have a 6 pounder eye round roast that will be sliced nice, thin, and hopefully tasty.  I did decide in the end after looking it over to cut the fat off I will put it over the roast to drip on it. I did some random things with this instead of going for a standard.  I made some slits in the meat and added chopped garlic and threw together a rub real quick.


    3 Tbs. CBP

    1 TBS garlic powder

    1 Tbs Bay leaf

    1 Tbs paprika

    1/2 Tbs salt

    1 Tbs French Roast Coffee ground.

    Like I said random but it sounded good so we will see in about 24 hours.

     Also anyone that has ever used coffee grounds on in a rub does it seem like the coffee cuts a lot of the smell of the other ingredients?  And when I saw cut I don't mean overpower but almost neutralize the other smells?  I have a pretty good smeller and the garlic that was really pungent is now pretty much gone.

    Looks great and sounds great but  I would like some of that fat to stave off dryness. Trim at the end
