Van Roehling OMGarlic seasoning to taste (1-2 tablespoons)
1 bone-in beef rib roast (6 to 7 pounds)
2 cups beef stock
Rub both seasonings all over roast. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan, fat
side up. Roast at 325° for about 2 ½ hours or until meat reaches desired
doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°;
well-done, 170°).
Remove roast from oven; tent with foil. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving.
Meanwhile, pour drippings and loosened browned bits from roasting pan into a
small saucepan; skim fat. Add beef stock to drippings; bring to a boil. Serve

Pot Roast
4 lb beef chuck roast
2 tablespoons Van Roehling Sizzlin Oak' seasoning
1/3 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for coating
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 stalks celery, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
2 tablespoons Van Roehling OMGarlic seasoning
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup red wine
3 cups low-sodium beef broth
1/2 cup loosely packed parsley leaves, chopped
Sprinkle the roast all over with Van Roehling Sizzlin Oak' seasoning. Coat in
flour and shake off any excess. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick
skillet over medium-high heat. Add the roast to the skillet and cook until golden
brown on all sides . Transfer the roast to the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker,
along with the carrots, celery, onions and 2 tablespoons Van Roehling
OMGarlic seasoning.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet over medium heat. Add the
tomato paste and stir until the oil begins to turn brick-red, about 1 minute. Add
the flour and wine and whisk until thick (it's OK if there are some lumps). Add
the beef broth, and bring to a simmer, whisking, until the gravy is smooth and
thickens slightly, about 4 minutes.
Pour the gravy into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. The
roast and vegetables should be tender.
Remove the roast and set aside. Toss the vegetables/gravy with the parsley
