  • 5 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® top round roast (cut in 4 logs)
  • 2 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons granulated honey (or brown sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons dried hot red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, ground to a powder in spice grinder (1/4 cup)
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced (or pushed thru garlic press)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine salt, black pepper, granulated honey, red pepper flakes, mushroom powder, garlic and olive oil. Stir well to form a thick paste the consistency of wet sand. Rub paste all over the top round roast logs, coating evenly. Wrap each log tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (at least 12 hours)
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F177°C. Evenly space roasts on a rack on a large sheet pan. Insert a meat thermometer in center of thickest log.
  3. Roast for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 275°F135°C and continue cooking an additional 20-25 minutes for medium doneness (135-140°F58-60°C)
  4. Let roasts rest for 10 minutes before carving. For best results slice very thinly.
