I am jonesing for some roast beef sandwiches, and dimly recall a recommended marinade of 1/2 Dale's, 1/2 beef broth to be injected.[p]I will be using either a top or bottom round, whichever I can find at Costco, but what would be better- injection or vacuum marinating?[p]tia[p]Big T

    Big T,
    I'm no expert, but I say inject that puppy. My guess is that injection will give deeper penetration throughout.
    YMMV, Bob

    Big T,[p]Vacuum bagging meat and a marinade tends to make the marinade really overpower the meat. I did a couple of pork chops way back and left them in the 'fridge for most of the day - 6 or 7 hours - way too much taste of the marinade. I think the Food Saver people recommend only a few minutes at best.
