I think that most people know that roasts are at their best when they’re cooked slow and low and this Bloody Mary Roast with Gravy is no exception. I use a standard Crock-Pot for this recipe or “Slow-Cooker” but you’re more than welcome to cook this in the oven, with a lid, at 200° Fahrenheit for the recommended 8 hours. The gravy is just a synch.
Bloody Mary Roast with Gravy Ingredients:
1 4 to 5 lbs Boneless Beef Chuck Roast 2 cups Bloody Mary Mix, Zing Zang
Gravy 2 tbsp Butter 2 tbsp All Purpose Flour 3 cups Roast Juice
Kosher Salt to taste
Cook in a Crock-Pot on low for 8 hours then make your gravy. I recommend adding Roasted Onions, Potatoes and Carrots as a side. Just follow the instructions in the short video tutorial and I’ll show you exactly how to make this Bloody Mary Roast.
These are the best Beef Short Ribs on the planet! I know, I’m modest but this isn’t my recipe. It’s just a real basic and classic way to cook them. It’s pretty much a Roast Beef recipe with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. So, I really can’t take credit for it. But I don’t mind showing you the easiest way to do it, from A to Z, to keep it short and simple. Just know that you don’t have to do it exactly the way I do, so feel free to improvise. This recipe can also be done in the oven or crock-pot if you don’t have the time to baby sit a pot on the stove. Also, add your potatoes to the pot if you don’t want to make mashed potatoes.
Braised Beef Short Ribs
These ribs are nothing short of excellent and this really is, pretty much, just a Braised Beef Short Ribs recipe. The only difference is that I don’t dust the ribs with flour, after I salt and pepper. But feel free to do it, if that’s what you prefer. There’s no special reason why I don’t or didn’t. The truth is I just got in a hurry ,between cooking and filming, and I just added them to the pot before I realized. And, as you can imagine, I completely pulled a Homer Simpson with a slap to the forehead and loud, “DOH!” But, hey, can’t be perfect all the time. This is, after all, the Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen.

This Leg of Lamb recipe is phenomenal and I’m not just saying that. It’s got all of the flare and Sweet flavor that any Lamb recipe should have. It’s succulent, tender and it’s got a nice caramelized glaze that just can’t be denied. Some could argue that it’s Asian influence makes this a Hawaiian recipe but I didn’t consult any Asian or Hawaiian recipes before I put this together. Though, I do have plenty of experience with the majority of these ingredients, the variety, I think will shock you.
4 to 6 lbs Leg of Lamb
The secret to a great leg of lamb lies in the combination of a balanced flavor with a tender, slow and low roast. How is this achieved? Well, I’ve learned that beef is generally more pleasant to eat because of the saturated fats. Lamb, however, has unsaturated fats that oxidize, giving it a stronger gamy taste that can tend to be a bit overwhelming. Mustard and Vinegar can be applied to neutralize the process and minimize the unpleasant taste. In this recipe, I’ve chosen to use Wasabi and it really does the trick. And, you don’t have to be afraid of using it either. Wasabi has a mixture of cabbages, horseradish and mustard that really evens out the flavor and there’s no unbearable heat either. In fact there is no spiciness left in the meat, whatsoever. And after the Sweet Chili Glaze caramelizes, you’ve got yourself one helluva Leg of Lamb!
