You will want to drink the gravy. So Good! Asian Beer Marinated Roast Beef - Lean cut perfect for Christmas

Last time I was at my local butcher, Corner’s Edge Butcher Shoppe, I decided to challenge myself and make a roast from a lean cut of Certified Angus Beef I had never tried before.  Their roasts were on sale, so I was going to save it for a special occasion.  Luckily, my butcher loves to talk about Certified Angus Beef as much as I do and walked me through the different cuts.  I picked up a roast and put in the freezer.  Well my grandparents are coming this weekend.  That is the perfect occasion to make a delicious roast beef.  Easy peasy, right?  Except I had forgotten which type of roast I had bought.

My butcher and I had talked about 3 or 4 different ones, and I could not quite remember which one I had decided on.  The label on my precious package of Certified Angus Beef only said beef.  Whoops!  I thought it was a bottom sirloin, but I wasn’t sure.  Thus I pulled up Certified Angus Beef’s Roast Perfect App and compared the pictures of each cut of roast with my roast.  Boy, it sure did look like the Ball Tip Roast, but I knew I had not bought a roast called “ball tip”.  I was saved yet again by their description and listing of common names.  Bingo!  Bottom Sirloin was there as a common name for a Ball Tip.  Yes, yes, yes.  That is the roast I bought.  Now what do I do with it.

Roast Perfect App to the rescue again.  They have recipes for each cut of beef.  Under the ball tip roasts was a recipe for Beer & Brown Sugar Marinated Roast Beef.  That sounded delicious.  When I read the ingredients and saw teriyaki sauce listed, I got the idea to put an Asian spin on it mixed with a little barbecue flavor.  That is where Asian Beer Marinated Roast Beef was born.  Thanks to the instructions for their recipe, I knew exactly how to cook this cut of beef.

The only difference I knew I would make, was to cook it rare.  While medium-rare is perfect for me, my father and husband both want theirs rare.  I was so relieved that I now knew what I was making and that with the help of the Roast Perfect App, The roast beef would be cooked perfectly. Finally, I could stop kicking myself for not writing the name of the roast on the package before I froze it.

Do you find different cuts of beef so confusing?  I do.  This is the second time the Roast Perfect App has helped me.  I love that they list all the different names you may find the same cut of meat sold under.  Did you know their recipes on the app also have a roasting timer in them?  You enter the type of roast, the weight and degree of doneness and it times your cooking process for you.  I love to use a probe thermometer as I tend to stress through the entire cooking process if I cannot see it going up every couple of degrees.  Yes, I have control issues.  This time I decided to use both, and their timer was right on. Awesome!  Now I am ready to challenge myself to another lean roast that I am not familiar with.  Fun, fun, fun!
