A little about Certified Angus Beef.
If you are a regular reader of The Educators’ Spin On It, you may have heard that I won the grand prize of Certified Angus Beef this summer in a recipe contest for Steak and Mango Flatbread. Since then, I have had 2 deliveries of skirt steak, filet Mignon and ribeyes.
I have never had better beef.
The marbling leads to the most mouthwatering, tender steaks I have every grilled.
I will never look at steak the same way again. Certified Angus Beef is the highest quality of beef on the market.
I think I may be their #1 fan!
Shopping for Holiday Roasts
This holiday season, do not be overwhelmed by the choices in the meat department. (see app information for how to get more details on each roast) Here are the most popular. If you are preparing a celebration meal, tenderloin or strip roast would make a delicious choice.
If you are like me and looking for a
1. Fabulous tasting.
2. Easy to prepare
3. Roast on a budget…
The chefs at Certified Angus Beef recommend starting with the top sirloin roast.
Seasonal Roasting with Certified Angus Beef® brand Roast Perfect App
The Certified Angus beef brand has launched the most comprehensive and user friendly roasting app on the market to address this need. The app, Roast Perfect, give suggestions on cut and size, calculates exact cooking times, provides tested recipes, educates consumers on how to work with their butcher, and identifies the locations where users can buy Certified Angus Beef.
You can add in the amount of people who will be eating at your holiday dinner and the app will help you calculate how big of a roast you should consider purchasing. I used the app to double check my recipe times and decide on herb flavor combinations for my rub.
There is even a section for blogger recipes. Maybe mine will be there some day????
I was browsing the recipes on the app and my husband happened to glance over my shoulder, “Is there an app for this?” I nodded and his eyes got wide! –
Sure enough, he stopped everything and added it to his phone. Of course, I lost him for the next 15 minutes as he browsed the different roast cuts and recipes. We “had” to watch some of the videos too! They make it seem SO EASY to roast!
“I could make a roast every weekend!” he exclaimed. (I’m all for that!)

Herbed Rotisserie Rib Roast with Portobello Mushroom Gravy
1 (8 lb) Certified Angus Beef® brand Rib Roast (See App for selections based on your guest list)
For the Rub:
3 Sprigs of Rosemary
1 Dried Hot Pepper
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
For the Portobello Mushroom Gravy
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Tablespoon of Butter
1 Small Onion Finely Chopped
1 12 Ounce Package of Sliced Portobello Mushrooms
1 Cups of Beef Stock
1 Tablespoon of Corn Starch
Salt and Pepper as desired
Herbed Rotisserie Rib Roast
Step 1. The night before roasting, place the rub ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until finely ground. Rub on roast. Tightly cover the roast with plastic wrap and place in the fridge.
NOTE: for less of a garlic flavor reduce the amount of garlic to 1/2 – 1 clove.
Step 2. Remove plastic wrap and place on rotisserie.
Sear at 450 °F for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature and cook at 450 °F for an additional 2 1/2 hours to an internal temperature of 125-128F (medium).
Remove from rotisserie.
Allow the roast to rest for 10-15 minutes prior to slicing. Put a tent of tinfoil over the roast to hold the heat in. The internal temperature of the roast will increase by around 10 degrees.
*Although tempting, resist the urge to peek at your roast while it is on the rotisserie. Every time you open the lid, heat escapes and you will need to lengthen the cooking time.
Portobello Mushroom Gravy
Step 1. Mince 2 Cloves of Garlic. Add the garlic, onion, and butter to a medium satay pan. Cook at medium temperature until the onions become opaque. Add in the mushrooms. Continue cooking until the mushrooms are golden brown. Add a splash of beef stock to keep the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Step 2. Add in the remaining beef stock, saving 2 Tablespoons in the measuring cup. Warm to boiling. Mix the cornstarch in with the remaining cold stock. Slowly add the cornstarch/ stock mixture to the gravy mixing thoroughly. For thicker gravy, use 1/2 Tablespoon more of cornstarch. Return the gravy to boiling. Boil for 1 minute then remove from heat and serve.
Salt and Pepper as desired
