Here are pictures of the cut roast and also slices. It's juicy, tender, and I so cannot wait for lunch tomorrow!

I'm glad that I added the rosemary. I didn't add much, but it gives the beef a wonderful flavor that blended well with the black pepper and onion/garlic powders.

This is one of the things my sister and I occasionally request from Dad. He does them on the grill and it's just so good.

My slicer is new! I have wanted one for some time now, and just got it for my birthday.

My grandpa used to have sliced roast beef in the fridge just ready to be made into sandwiches. He sliced the beef with a sharp knife. I remembered that and did it for myself, many years back. I usually slice it with a knife as well, even though I have a slicer. It's a personal challenge thing, to get the slices uniform, and thin enough.

When PAG And Sprout moved out of the house, I made the same thing for them, first as a gift, then, when they request it, and I'm going down to see them, or they're coming up to see us. I so enjoy making my girls happy. I love being a dad, even when they roll their eyes at me.

For my sons, it's jerky that they love. I make that for them.

I love heart and tongue! I've not had heart in years. Tongue is becoming more common in several Mexican restaurants around here. One place near my job does it right!

I'm specifically seeking how to make deli-style lunch meats, and the turkey turned out good. To make it more deli-like, I would need a slicer - though the thinly carved pieces were delicious. I'm considering a rare roast beef next.

I doubt that I would have thought to make my own except that deli-purchased meats have caused some queasiness, and I believe it is because of the high salts and preservatives found in some products even when purchased from different sources.

Today, I have my turkey on homemade honey-oat bread with mayo, avocado, and I added bacon.

I have a meat slicer, not a walmart junk special either. This is one like you would find in any deli. Bought it years ago for $350 CDN. I also have a Meat Grinder, sausage stuffer and 30 inch MES smoker I have made many lunch meat/deli style things. I make Summer Sausage, Bologna (That involves my Food Processor also). SmokersMeat Forum has much info on doing these types of meats.
