Speaking of Every Day Paleo, I really enjoyed this blog post Sarah posted the other day. You Can't Fix a Body You Hate I have had this conversation many a times with friends/fellow gym members, usually women of course, but sometimes no matter how hard we work and no matter how good of shape we are in, we are never satisfied with our bodies. Are you guilty of this? I know I am. Check out her post, it may give you a different perspective.
Ok here's what you need:
- 2 1/2 lbs beef roast
- one yellow onion
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/4 tsp chipolte powder
- 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbs oregano
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp celtic sea salt-- it turned out pretty salty so use less if you don't enjoy salt. I have an unhealthy love for salt.
|Beef from Trader Joe's|
|all the spices for the dry rub|
2.) mix all spices together
3.) massage spices into the beef-- give this thing a good rub down. If you had a run in with the pull-up bar this week, I don't recommend bare handing the raw meat and spices with ripped hands. Throw a zip lock bag on your hands like I did!
5. Put your spiced up beef roast in a pan, and toss the chopped onion ontop of the meat and around it in the baking dish.
6. I cooked my meat medium- so I cooked it at 420 degreees for about 45 mins total/ until the temp of the meat read 140 degrees.
7. Take the meat out and lightly cover with a piece of tin foil for another 10-15 mins. The meat will continue to cook in the center and you want the internal temp to rise to about 150 degrees. Again this is for cooking it medium. Cook for less time if you want it more rare.
