Tips

  • The meat is good for three to four days in the fridge or two to six months in the freezer.

  • Keep cooking liquid to make soup or gravy.

  • This is not an overly seasoned roast.  

  • This is meant to be a base for quick future recipes.  

  • By not over seasoning the beef initially, add additional seasoning(s) later to transform the beef into different meals.
