When cooking a beef roast it is important to know that seasoning added to the surface of the meat before roasting will only penetrate the meat a small fraction. Large beef roasts, like beef ribs and rounds usually have mostly fat covering or bone. The reason the seasoning of a beef roast has little effect is because the fat and bones are not commonly eaten. This is why it is important to know two alternative techniques when seasoning a beef roast right before roasting.

1. Marinate the meat or apply seasonings in advance, to give the time for flavors to penetrate.

2. Serve the beef roast with a flavorful sauce, gravy, or jus. The sauce serves as a seasoning and favoring for the meat.

3. Another way to add flavor to beef roasts is to smoke-roast them. The flavor of wood smoke in cooked meats is delicious.

When cooking beef roasts it is also important to roast them fat side up. When you roast them with the fat side up, the fat melts and runs down the sides and provides continuous basting. Also, when cooking a beef roast, it is better to cook the meat on low temperatures. This increases the tenderness in the beef roast.

ROAST RIB OF BEEF with Au Jus/Serves 20 to 25


– 20lb beef rib, roast ready, bone in (average size)
– 8oz Onions
– 4oz Carrots
– 4oz Celery
– 2qt Brown stock
– Salt, to taste
– Pepper, to taste

How To Put It Together

1. Place the meat fat side up in a roasting pan.

2. Use a thermometer and insert it in the center of the roast.

3. Place meat in a preheated 300 degrees F oven. Roast until rare or medium done, as desired, allowing for carryover cooking.

Thermometer readings are, Rare: 120 degrees F, Medium: 130 degrees F. Note: the outer slices will be cooked more than the center. Roasting time will be at least 3 to 4 hours.

4. Remove the meat from the pan and let stand in a warm place 30 minutes before carving.

5. Drain off all but about 3 to 4 oz of the fat from the roasting pan. Try to keep any juices in the pan. Add the mirepoix (onions, carrots, celery) to the pan.

6. Set the pan over high heat and cook until mirepoix is brown and moisture has evaporated, leaving only fat, mirepoix, and browned drippings.

7. Pour off any excess fat.

8. Pour about 1 pt of stock into the roasting pan to deglaze it. Stir over heat until brown drippings are dissolved.

9. Pour the deglazing liquid and mirepoix into a saucepot with the remaining stock. Simmer until mirepoix is soft and liquid is reduced by about one-third.

10. Strain through a china cap lined with cheesecloth. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

11. When serving, cut down beside the bones to free the meat, and slice the meat across the grain.

12. Serve each slice with Jus.

Question by res: Which soda is gassier?
Warm or hot? Because I’d like to prevent belching. And which soda is the gassiest and least gassiest.

Best answer:

Answer by Fish Fry
The gassiness of soda is inversely proportional to the relative temperature. Hot soda is least gassy, cold soda is most gassy. CO2 comes out of suspension as the soda warms up.

The Crimson before the Party

(the bigger sizes are nice!)

I was lucky enough, thanks to a friend, get entry to run around the Crimson Lounge in Chicago on a Saturday before they opened. I think maybe some of you have seen the other Chicago photos of this location… there were so many interesting things to shoot with great angles. That reminds me — did you know that if you scroll down and look on the right, you can click there to see photos from various locations around the world?

Speaking of shooting cool stuff inside of an amazing place, we have a secret event coming up in Austin in the beginning of December. But shhh… don’t tell anyone… I’ll announce more as the time gets closer. It’s going to be quite a party. It may or may not have something to do with a major book launch from someone you may or may not know.
