"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Pit Beef


Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
3 lb piece top round
8 kaiser rolls, or 16 slices rye bread
1 sweet onion, sliced thin
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced thin (optional)
Iceburg lettuce (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Sprinkle 3 to 4 tablespoons of rub all over the beef, patting it in. Place in a baking dish, and cover with plastic wrap. You can cover the beef with the rub and let sit for a few hours, but for maximum flavor, leave it for 3 days in the refrigerator, turning once daily.

Prepare a hot grill. Grill beef 30 to 40 minutes, or until outside is crusty and dark brown and internal temperature is about 120 (for rare). Turn beef often. Transfer to a cutting board; let it rest 10 minutes.

Serve with horseradish sauce and desired bread. Have tomatoes and lettuce as optional add ons to sandwich.

This pit beef recipe yields rare doneness for a 3 lb piece of top round. Cook longer for a larger piece of beef or for more well done temperature. A whole top round weighing 15-20 lbs should take about an hour and a half total on a flat-top grill for rare to medium-rare.
