Grilled Bottom Round Roast

"I needed to conquer what promised to be an especially tough bottom round roast from a steer who lived his life chomping only grass & clambering up & down mountainous terrain. The overnight marination along bringing roast up to room temp before grilling did the trick. We like our beef rare, especially for leftovers to be used in sandwiches & salads, hence internal temp of just barely to 140 degrees F. You need to check on your roast frequently after initial 30 -40 minutes to reach but not exceed internal temp you prefer (140 - rare, 160 - medium (barely pink inside)). Serve with Recipe #43044 & green salad with balsamic dressing & balsamic marinated onions. Yum, yum, yum. Try to choose a roast that has a shell or rind of fat on one side - it'll rest longest on that side on the grill & not dry out the meat. *Cooking time probably too long but does NOT include long marinade."

    How do you "inject" sessongings instead of marinating ?

    This turned out beautifully! I didn't decide to make it until the morning of, so instead of marinating overnight I injected the seasonings directly into the meat and let sit in the fridge for about 6 hours before bringing to room temperature. Definitely did the trick! I served it with a cobb salad, baked mac and cheese, and corn on the cobb.

    Awesome recipe! I bought this type of roast not knowing anything about the cut and found this recipe, thank god! I added a little balsamic vinegar to the marinade just for a little added flavor. I used a Black and Tan Yuengling. It came out great! We cooked it a little less than the 12 minutes per lb and took it off a little early because we were worried about overcooking. Still great! I served it with baked potato, garden fresh salad and green beans. It's a good roast for when people have differing tastes in doneness because you can always serve them an end cut. Thanks Again!!

<p>First about Buster: Buster moved onto whatever comes next on February 26, 2008. He was just shy of five years old. I miss him terribly. <br />He came into our lives when he ran out in front of my car late one night as I was driving home. A just under 4 pound ball of kitten fluff, complete with an ostrich boa tail that stayed straight up as he assessed his new domain. He became a 19 pound longhaired beast who guarded our house (he followed any new guests or servicepeople the entire time they are on the property) &amp; even killed copperheads (among other things with his hunting buddy, Fergus the short-tailed)! Friends never saw his formidible side as he smiled at them &amp; uttered the most incongruent kitten-like mews as he threaded legs! He liked to ride in the car &amp; came to the beach. <br />There are Buster-approved recipes in my offerings - however, HE decided which he wanted to consider - Buster demonstrated he liked pumpkin anything - ALOT -LOL!!! <br /> <br />Copperhead count 2006 - Buster 2 <br /> (10 inchers w/yellow tails) <br /> 2007 - Buster &amp; Roxie 1 <br /> (a 24 incher!) <br />Buster woken from beauty sleep - <br />http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/62264/DSCN0335.JPG <br />Big whiskers - <br />http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/62264/DSCN0333.JPG <br /> <br />For those of you who gave kind condolences - thank you so very much. <br />http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=250301 <br /> <br /> <br />I love to cook &amp; incorporate techniques from Southern/Mid Atlantic roots (grits, eastern NC BBQ shoulders, Brunswick stew, steamed crabs &amp; shrimp &amp; shellfish, hushpuppies, cornbread, greens, shad roe, scrapple) with Pacific Rim foods &amp; techniques aquired while living in Pacific Northwest, fish &amp; game recipes learned while living in Rocky Mountain region &amp; foods/techniques learned travelling to the Big Island &amp; up into BC &amp; Alberta &amp; into the Caribbean. The Middle Eastern/African likes I have are remnants of my parents who lived for many years in North Africa &amp; Mediterranean before I was thought of. Makes for wide open cooking! <br /> <br />Since moving back east we try to go annually in the deep winter to Montreal (Old Montreal auberges &amp; La Reine) &amp; Quebec City (Winter Carnival &amp; Chateau Frontenac)- for unctuous foie gras &amp; real cheeses, French &amp; Canadian meals prepared &amp; served exquisitely, fantastic music &amp; wonderful people - with the cold helping burn off some of the calories! <br /> <br />I love putting in our aluminum jonboat &amp; heading across the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the barrier islands for foraging &amp; exploring! Bodysurfing is a lifelong sport for me - one that a person's body never seems to forget how to do, once the knack is learned (thank goodness!) <br /> <br />I especially miss cool summers &amp; foggy/drizzly days &amp; fall mushroom foraging/anytime of year hot springing in WA, OR, MT, ID, BC &amp; Alberta.</p>
