    • 4 -6 lbs standing beef rib roast

    Drowning Mixture

    Massaging Compound


    1. 1
      For the Drowning Mixture, stir together the wine, onion, water, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, marjoram, garlic salt, and water in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Place meat in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
    3. 3
      Add the mixture; close the bag.
    4. 4
      Drown the beef in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
    5. 5
      Empty the beef’s swimming pool and throw the liquid away (unless you are a Jamie Oliver fan – if so, you can wash your hair with it).
    6. 6
      Thoroughly mix all the Massaging Compound ingredients in a small bowl and use it all to give the beef a really good massage all over (you can tell when you’re done when you hear the beef whispering “Oooooh, that feels goooood).
    7. 7
      Place the beef, fat side up, in a large roasting pan (or, if you’re an Emeril fan, “inside of” a large roasting pan).
    8. 8
      Insert a meat thermometer into the center, making sure that it is not touching bones.
    9. 9
      Roast in a 325°F oven to desired doneness, allowing 1¾ to 3 hours for rare (140°F internal temperature), 2¼ to 3¾ hours for medium (160°F internal temperature), or 2¾ to 4¼ hours for well done (170°F internal temperature).
    10. 10
      Transfer the meat to a cutting board.
    11. 11
      Cover with foil (or, if you are a Paula Deen fan, you may use fawl) and let stand for 15 minutes before carving.

      I have used this recipe with many different types of beef roasts and it always turns out good. I have always used whatever wine we have open, so I can tell you it also works well with any wine that you like to drink. The toughest cuts of meat are completely tenderized by the drowning mixture within 24 hours. We use this so much that I have modified it for the crock pot for the days when I can't be at home to get it in the oven on time.
