Tender beef round roast is marinated in a mixture of beer, brown sugar, and dijon mustard for 12 hours then roasted in a slow oven until it’s just right. Tender, juicy, and full of flavor – this is a nice change from those turkey leftovers!
For this recipe you’ll need: 3 pounds bottom sirloin roast (I used beef round roast), dark beer, Dijon mustard, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and guijillo peppers (because I love their flavor!)
I have a tendency to wonder how to cook a beef round roast, or want to do something different than I usually do, and then end up tossing it in the slow cooker as usual. This time I’m followed the recipe for Beer and Brown Sugar Marinated Roast from the folks at Certified Angus Beef® brand and roasted it instead.
We’ll get to that in a minute.
I was super excited to be asked to be a paid ambassador for Certified Angus Beef ® brand this year. It’s a brand that I’ve used for years because I like the quality of the meat and the integrity of the company. Being an ambassador means that they’ll be partnering with Restless Chipotle over the next year to bring you great recipes, tips, and ideas on how to make the best of your beef dishes.
I’ll always have a disclosure so you’ll know when I’m being paid but if y’all know me at all you know I can’t be paid to say something I don’t believe.
Back to this beef round roast.
The recipe calls for a ball tip roast (bottom sirloin) but there weren’t any available during my shopping trip. I chose this Certified Angus Beef ® brand Round Rump Roast because that’s what was available. On the website Certified Angus Beef ® brand says this: Lean and economical, this cut is best enjoyed braised. When roasted in the oven, slice thin against the grain to maximize tenderness.
I can do that. In fact, y’all need to download the Roast Perfect ap onto your phone. It helps you know how much to buy, what kind of roast will work best for what you’re doing, and all kinds of things. I use it during every shopping trip – no lie.
I wasn’t too worried about it being tough because it marinates for 12 to 14 hours before cooking. That’s plenty of time for the fibers to soften up and start to break down. So, I mixed the marinade ingredients together, put the beef in a vacuum sealer bag, added the marinade, and prepared to wait it out.
It was totally worth it.
I have to tell you, as I put this on the table I felt like I should be wearing heels, a starched apron, and pearls. There’s something about roast beef that just feels like a family dinner, don’t you think?
