    Inquiring minds want to know (actually, I’m just curious and nosy.)

    Dear Curious,

    I had a good time roasting a cut I had never done. It was very easy after letting the rub stay on it for 2 days, and tasty. It was not as tender as I had wished, unrealistically, but was at least as tender as I expected. It really needed the horseradish sauce as it was just solid meat. I cut it too thick, probably 1/2″ and would make it a little thinner next time. But I sure would do it again. Timing was perfect. It was a 3 pounder. I did it 15 min at 425 and 50 min at 350 or less. The young buck at the table ate 1.3 lb. on his own.

    My guests had lived in Mozambique and compared it somewhat to a Portuguese picanha.

    Thanks for asking. It was a 2 for 1 sale so the other is in the freezer. We’ll see if I learn anything from experience.

      How lovely when a death-defying portion of dinner works out–at least that’s how I look at large chunks of scary meat which always, always turn into tire retreads for me.

      I had to look up “picanha”. I wonder if that’s what Lana’s husband made for Angie (AK) and I (and hubbies) a few years back. Chunks of steaks cooked over fire pit on long spits…served with Lana’s homemade Portuguese bread. It was phenomenal.

      (nope…just looked up Portugues skewer version and that’s called Espetadas.)

      Good luck with Round 2.
