Is a Bottom Round Roast Good?

Local store has buy one get one free of this type of meat. Is it worth buying? My wife thinks it's not a good piece of meat. Thanks

    Your wife's right. About the only thing bottom round is good for is making deli roast beef. Roast to 125 internal, chill and then slice paper thin for sammies.

    Thanks Mark, but I wont tell her she was right :)

    It makes decent cheese steaks

    Hey, I did forget something. Bottom round is also perfectly fine for making jerky if you were so inclined. If you don't want to do it right away, freeze it and save it for later. I do most of my jerky making in the fall and winter.

    That's what I will buy it for. I wonder if the butcher would slice it for me. With or against the grain for jerky?

    Good deal! Slice with the grain.

    I'd buy them. As mentioned great for deli meat and philly cheese sandwhiches. Also roast for Chicago Beef sammies, Sheperds Pie, SOS, etc.

    Always go with the grain for jerky. Other wise you will end up with a mess.

    Now if you REALLY want to "Q" it, marinate it. Take out two forks and fork the hell out of it first, then throw it in the soup. LOL Sear, cook to temp and slice this across the grain if you want to eat it.

    What about jerky? I use it for pit beef to.

    America's test kitchen turned me on to this roast. It has to be salt and peppered then placed in refridge for at least 24hrs. Seared in oven then cooked slowly. If done right it is as good as it gets. I am looking on site to see how to do this in my new egg.
