An Outdoor Wedding,BBQ Sauce, and Pot Roast Sunday!

Today we must attend good friends daughters' wedding. It is to be held outside at a small park, with reception at same park afterwards. I was asked to make some of my signature Memphis-style bourbon bbq sauce. It's sweet, herby, some heat, with a smoky flavor courtesy of Jack Daniels (and a little Liquid Smoke!). It's about 90F, humid, and could rain-Yee-Hah!!! I'm already looking forward to Sunday when I'm making (in the air conditioned comfort of my own kitchen!) Beef Pot Roast. The recipe as follows:
Seasonings- onion powder, garlic powder, coarse ground black pepper, Lawrys seasoned salt.
Meat- 2 pcs of beef chuck about 2-1/2lbs. each. Roll,flop,turn meat in seasonings 'til coated.
Put seasoned meat on heavy duty aluminum foil(enough to wrap and seal meat completely).
Pour 1 can of cream o celery soup(unduluted) over meat, then a pkg of dry brown gravy mix over soup.
Wrap and seal tightly, roast for 3-1/2 hrs at 325F in oven.
Pour off juices into pan, thicken w/flour mixed with cold water, heat until gravy.
Meat is flavorful and dead tender, with gravy for potatoes, noodles, or on the meat.
Enjoy your week-ends!!!

MikeM- Brazil nuts can kill you from falling off tree! Thanks for award!
jen- I'm not far away, you are!:)
akelamalu- If more people would wrap a beef chuck roast tightly before cooking, no one would ever eat tough pot roast again!
Snow- Have a good BBQ! Use that one great root beer made in Wisconsin for floats!

roast beast....mmmmmm so good. I tend not to heat up the place this time of year but boy oh boy does that sound good...and not to sound gross but I like the gristle after it has cooked a long time and tenderized itself to jelly...

Kate- Outdoor wedding was pretty warm, but nicely done! The recipe is virtually goof proof!
Dog B- I actually thought of that, and switched to an oblong slow cooker on high for 4 hrs! Came out on the money....

Beth said...

buffalodickdy said...

Beth- Just juice? 31 days? Good Luck!
Pink- It's been discussed, I have a web site reserved....
Lynda- Actually took some of the beef, chopped it up, mixed with BD's BBQ sauce and had beef BBQs!
Tanya- Don't even like bourbon, but in the sauce is delightful!
