Meat Mountain

Decided to try a 4lb top sirloin roast last night. Used an herbed butter (fresh thyme, parsley, Dijon). Seared on the CI skillet then put on the Egg, 275 deg for about 1.5hrs and pulled it off at 130 deg. Let it rest for 20 minutes where the herbed butter melted and created a sauce of meaty deliciousness - hence the pile of meat as I kept turning the pile to make sure everything was coated. My daughter's boyfriend, one of the most picky eaters I've ever met, dug it so I guess I got it right.

    You added the herbed butter at the end, like a board sauce as you cut it?  Great idea.  I'm always cautious about such a lean cut being dry and tough.  That looks like neither.

  • Yes sir, just like a board sauce. It was very juicy and tender. I was originally going to do rib eyes but this roast was just $16 from my local butcher - instead of $50 for the same weight in rib eyes. I thought why not. The cut was not as tender as a rib eye but still very good.

    Get the shotgun and keep it conspicuous. He sounds like trouble.

  • The butter came from Cooks Country. Here's the link:  http://www.cookscountry.com/recipes/4995-herbed-roast-beef?extcode=LN13N2KAA

    As I don't own a shotgun, I have to rely on other methods of intimidation. As I'm an IT guy with some "special clearances", I use the "in one call, I can have you pulled over on the way home and you'll get to know Buddy in lock up." He's not a bad kid, he's useful to dig ditches, move rocks, work on my roof, change my oil...

    Dig ditches? You can use the IT/"I know a guy" and chain gangs to your advantage.
  • Here is a dopey pic of the compound butter that had gotten a bit hard after sitting on the counter. It eventually melted, just took about 20 minutes...

  • I'm sure whatever those 4 wine corks by your cutting board were holding in the bottle didn't hurt either :))

  • @Centex: I wish it was 4 bottles of vino. Those were cork guards for the metal spikes on the cutting board.
