Hi Everyone.[p]Hopefully one day I'll know enough to answer questions instead of asking them![p]We are hosting a family gathering for around 15 people. Can you recommend some budget minded beef recipes? The only one I have in mind right now is the Naked Whiz's London Broil which I am a big fan of.

    Al,
    Three tri-tips would take care of 15 people. -RP

    Al,
    Eye of round is usually pretty inexpensive. It's also very lean, so you may want to brine it or at the very least marinate it. For 15 people, I'd pick up 9 or 10 pounds of eye of round, marinate overnight in a garlicky dressing, and slow roast (around 275 degrees) it to an internal temp of 170. Slice it razor thin, serve on fresh kaiser rolls.[p]HTH

    BlueSmoke,
    thank you...roughly how long I should plan for the cooking time?

  • BlueSmoke,[p]A good marinade for that eye of round. Also good with a rib roast.[p]1 & 1/3 cups red wine
    1 & 1/3 cups red wine vinegar
    1/3 cup olive oil
    4 teaspoons dried rosemary
    4 garlic cloves minced
    2 teaspoons dried thyme[p]Marinade overnight in the refrigerator.
    Drain and rub with:
    1 & 1/2 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper
    1 & 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt[p]Slow cook at 200* to 220* about 45 to 50 minutes per pound to rare.[p]Good luck,
    Mike

    Al,
    I'd start from 15 mins. per pount. The eye of rounds I see locally run about 3 to 4 pounds each, so I'd start my guesstimate at 45 minutes.[p]HTH
