Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the Drowning Mixture, stir together the wine, onion, water, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, marjoram, garlic salt, and water in a bowl.
  2. Place meat in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
  3. Add the mixture; close the bag.
  4. Drown the beef in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
  5. Empty the beef’s swimming pool and throw the liquid away (unless you are a Jamie Oliver fan – if so, you can wash your hair with it).
  6. Thoroughly mix all the Massaging Compound ingredients in a small bowl and use it all to give the beef a really good massage all over (you can tell when you’re done when you hear the beef whispering “Oooooh, that feels goooood).
  7. Place the beef, fat side up, in a large roasting pan (or, if you’re an Emeril fan, “inside of” a large roasting pan).
  8. Insert a meat thermometer into the center, making sure that it is not touching bones.
  9. Roast in a 325°F oven to desired doneness, allowing 1¾ to 3 hours for rare (140°F internal temperature), 2¼ to 3¾ hours for medium (160°F internal temperature), or 2¾ to 4¼ hours for well done (170°F internal temperature).
  10. Transfer the meat to a cutting board.
  11. Cover with foil (or, if you are a Paula Deen fan, you may use fawl) and let stand for 15 minutes before carving.
