FYI: The table was styled courtesy of my 5 and 9 year old!
They are wonderful kitchen helpers 25% of the time..
My 3 year old made the biscuits.
I had to re-shoot this photo several times, because his hand kept stealing the biscuits.
And yes, we use cloth napkins every day & for holiday dinners!

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.
Here’s the the best grilled Ribeye Recipe we used!
Let me be honest here. 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!

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 the 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, bring to room temperature, and place on rotisserie.
Sear at 450 °F for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature and cook at 450 °F for an additional 2 hours to an internal temperature of 125-128F (medium). * NOTE, the rotisserie will cook differently than the oven or grill. Remove earlier for a rare roast. (my kids like a well done roast)
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 after cooking 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
Serve and enjoy
