This was GOOD, and the smell of it cooking drove us crazy!

Smoky Beef Roast

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke (I used hickory)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) boneless beef roast (mine had a biggie)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow container, combine the first eight ingredients. Add roast.  Seal bag or cover container; refrigerate for 8 hours.
Drain and discard marinade. Place roast in greased 2 1/2−quart baking pan. Cover and bake at 325 degrees F for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Baste with barbecue sauce. Bake, uncovered, 10 to 20 minutes longer or until beef is fork−tender.

Yields 4 to 6 servings.

Note:  I used a 3 to 4 lb. beef roast

Country Fried Steak

  • 1 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 to 3 lb. round steak, trimmed and cut into serving sized pieces (can also use cubed steaks and cut back on cooking time)
  • buttermilk or egg beaten w/1 tbsp. water
  • 1/4 c. butter


  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 c. reserved flour mixture
  • 2 c. milk or 1 c. heavy cream + 1 c. water
  • extra water as needed

Mix flour and seasonings.  Soak steak pieces in buttermilk or egg mixture, then dredge in the seasoned flour mixture (reserve 1/2 c. mixture for gravy).  Brown carefully on both sides in butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Cover and cook over low/medium-low heat for about 45 minutes (you may want to add a little bit of water) until tender.  Remove steaks from skillet and cover to keep warm.

For gravy:  melt butter over medium heat in the same skillet that you cooked the steaks, scraping browned bits of steak from the bottom.  Stir in the reserved flour mixture and cook for about a minute.  Slowly whisk in the milk a bit at a time, waiting until the mixture thickens before adding the next bit of milk, until all of the milk has been added and gravy is thick.  Add extra water and whisk to achieve desired consistency.  Serve over steak and accompanying mashed potatoes or rice.
