Marinated Beef Roast, Chop House style

with 3 comments

Warning: I am not attempting to imitate the famed “Chop House Roast”… if there is one.

While I sit here consuming another wonderful meal, I wonder how it could be better.  Other than having scantily-clad beautiful women feed me while gently fanning me with giant palm leaves, I think this roast would be better served on a sandwich or panini.  The meat is very flavorful, but a little tough. That may be a cause of the cut of meat or the temperature it was cooked at though.  Either way it quickly making it’s way into my belly.

Alongside the roast is a heaping pile of steamed broccoli and a spring salad with caesar dressing. Pretty simple meal overall.  Was ridiculously easy to prepare and make.  I stuffed the sliced garlic into the roast and slathered the beef in the marinade yesterday before bed and let it marinade for almost 24 hours.  When I got home after work today, fired up the ‘ol danger-oven (no singed arm hairs this time) to 400° and tossed that sucker in there on a cookie sheet to burn.  Turned it once after about 20 minutes, started the broccoli and opened my beer. Mmmmm beer.

Other suggestions for this meal:  Baked or mashed potatoes, risotto, rice, braaaaaaiiiiiiiinnnnnnns.

I’m also going to start including an approximated ingredient list or recipe should you wish to duplicate my perfection deliciousness. I was also told by some “birthday book” that I should get over my arrogance. To that I say: eat this semi-delicious meal. 😀

What you need:

  • 1lb beef roast
  • ~1 cup marinade (I used “Chop House style” marinade – Ralphs brand)
  • 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1/4 onion chopped
  • broccoli & dressing
  • salad

Serves 2, add rice or beans or another side to serve 3.

Estimated total meal cost:  12$
