Where can I find a corned beef roast (not brisket)?

At the Memorial golf tournament in Dublin Ohio – at the VIP pavillion on Saturday they prepare roast corned beef which is similar to prime rib. I’d like to do one for Thanksgiving instead of turkey.

one of us is confused ,corned beef is a cured brisket.and I cant think of a way that you could cook it and make it come out like prime rib.
Ive been cooking both corned beef brisket and brisket for years ,so im pretty sure I know what I’m talking about.
depending on the store you buy your meat at.you will usually find the briskets and the corned beef together.
At my super market the have what is called a whole brisket.It is fat on one end and gets smaller at the other,the small flat end is what is popularly used to cure into corned beef,sometimes you can find the other end cured also.
anyway the large end is usually roasted as is or barbecued.
I roast a whole brisket at times with really good results,Its tender and juicy.
of course there is always the possibility that it is a specialty cut of meat that someone corned (cured) but it wouldn’t look anything like a prime rib, its flesh would be pink like ham.
So maybe you could call whoever did the dinner and ask.
wish I could be of more help.
peace ><>

what beef roast is the most tender without paying for prime rib or fillet mignon?

i did a boneless rib roast and it came out tough..

Please see this article for the best ways to tenderize a tough roast. This is geared towards novice cooks and people who have to buy meat on a budget. Additionally, the quality of meat has gone down:

Why did my chicken come out rubbery?

My first time making baked chicken…. I seasoned it, put 4 legs in a Pyrex pan thing and cooked them for 1 hour at 390 degrees…. 30 mins on each side… they are tough and rubbery….. not easily falling off the bone like normal… what did i do wrong? Could it be the meat quality?

slow and low is the key. Season them, put them on a baking sheet, or a pyrex pan, whichever, but add a little water in the bottom. this will keep them moist while cooking. Bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, and check them. If you have a probe thermometer, check the temperature, it should be at 160 degrees when you take them out. There is no need to turn them, they will cook evenly enough. Once you take them out, let them sit a minute or two, then serve! They should turn out alot better. Don’t ever cook chicken at 390, that is way too high and it cooks the chicken too fast, drying the meat out. And keeping it in for an hour definitely took all the moisture out, no wonder it turned out rubbery! I hope this helps, and I hope your chicken turns out delicious!

Can Meat be a Health Hazard

Authors note: This article is intended for those who currently consume commercially raised meat (that includes chicken, fish, lamb, pork, beef…) and processed meat products.

Picture this: you are standing at the shelf of your local supermarket looking at the chickens and thinking “which one shall I buy?”. Does it really make a difference? You could buy two of those normal chickens for the same price as that free range organic one? In the following article I wish to outline some reasons as to why I recommend paying extra for a higher quality and ethical product.

Commercial Meat – a health hazard

Not all meat you buy is the same. Commercial meat production has sadly through greed and corruption turned a healthy product into a health hazard. Not to mention an animal welfare disgrace. This is far from an exaggeration. Commercial animals are kept in confined, cramped pens, given growth hormones to speed their delivery to the abattoir, antibiotics to stop the spread of disease from their conditions, and even fed products like genetically modified soy (mostly grown in Brazil at the expense of the Amazon rainforest) that given to humans in light of current research is very dangerous to health!

Antibiotics everywhere

Each year, in the U.S. alone farmers dump over 9 million pounds of antibiotics into the food and water supply of farm animals. This however is not intended to primarily fight or prevent disease but to fatten up livestock, which is sadly a side effect of the antibiotics (1). Grains (often contaminated with fungus or fungicides) are also used to fatten up livestock at the expense of the traditional and healthy grass feed.

Processed meats and cancer

A recent report from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute on the dangers of eating processed meats (including bacon, sausage, hot dogs, salami, ham, and smoked or cured meat) concluded that by adding 1 ounce of processed meat to your daily diet elevates your stomach cancer risks by as much as 38 %. The review looked at 40 years worth of studies on the relationship between these meats and stomach cancer (cited in www.mercola.com)

What about those dangerous saturated fats you ask?

Here are some “interesting” facts:

– Between 1910 and 1970: animal fat consumption decreased from 83% to 62%

– Butter consumption decreased from 18 pounds to 4 pounds per year

– Margarine, shortening and refined oils consumption increased 400%

– Today, CHD (Coronary Heart Disease) causes at least 40% of all U.S. deaths (2)

– The fatty acids found in arterial clogs are mostly unsaturated (74%) of which 41% are polyunsaturated (3)

Could nature has designed a product like breast milk with so many saturated fats like butyric, caproic, caprylic, capric, lauric, myristic, palmitic and stearic acids? Breast milk is the source of nourishment to ensure the growth, development and survival of children. Do you see the discrepancy in that? Unfortunately all the studies that point to saturated fat as the culprit put deadly man-made trans fatty acids in the mix.

To learn more on the truth of saturated fats and the real killer trans fatty acids I recommend you read my previous article “Fat facts: good guys or bad guys”. (2)

I hope this article has given you a strong enough reason to believe that paying extra as often as possible for a healthy, ethical, free range, hormone free and unprocessed meat product is really worth it.

Can’t think of any meals for the week?

Maybe a few of you have some suggestions because i always come home from the store with the same things. I’m not too picky, as long as the dish has a good amount of meat in it. And i don’t mind cooking meals that are worth the quality. Any suggestions?

Here are some things I have cooked in the last couple weeks
maybe it will give you an idea.

grilled pork chops, grilled zucchini with onions,
minute steaks, egg plant au gratin
baked orange roughy, fried potatoes, aspargus
homemade chicken pot pie
chinese cheeseburgers
smoked sausage
mexican layer dip (its a meal)

This is so good, I use broccoli instead of mixed vege.

CHICKEN POT PIE

1 can veg-all mixed vegetables
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream chicken soup
1/2 cup milk
1 or 2 large chicken breast cut into chunks
salt and pepper to taste
2 9-inch deep dish unbaked pie crust

Saute chicken in 2 tablespoons olive oil for about 3 minute until light brown, add chicken to the first 4 ingredients.
Mix together and pour into pie crust. Put top crust on pie, cut 4 slits in the crust. Brush with beaten egg wash.

Bake on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 45 minutes
