Hot Beef Sundae " ,Smoked Roast Beef and Onion Gravy over Whipped Mashed Potatoes with Cheddar and Bacon sprinkles Topped with Sour Cream and Cherry Tomatoes
Now on to how I did this

Started with 2 -1 1/4 +/- pound Inside Round Oven Roast, salt and pepper coated and into the fridge for 4 hours

Into the smoker for 2 hours Smoker at 250- 265 deg. with Hickory , Brought it to 139Deg. IT
While this was going on I did up the rest of the ingredients Bacon for the sprinkles and the onions for the gravy which I fried in the pan of bacon drippings

Made a broth from the bacon pan and the fried onions and soya sauce and Worcestershire and a little beef broth, put roasts in pan covered and back into the smoker for another 2 hours +/- until it came up to 202 Deg. Smoker was rolling at 180+Deg. Pulled let it sit for 20 minutes and than seared in the pan from the bacon and onion fry.

Made a roux out of butter and flour, added to the pan of the beef and the broth. Had to have a bowl of this while making
So got all ready and plated it up 2 big scoops of mashed potatoes than lots of the beef and gravy poured over top . Sprinkled with the bacon and cheddar cheese. 2 spoons of sour cream and topped with a couple nice cherry tomatoes

I know long winded but had fun doing and For a very cold day 2 deg. C ( 35 F ) and windy. Glad I had the " Smokers Shack "

Again thank you all for voting and enjoying the pictures as much as I enjoyed building and eating this

Merry Christmas to everyone and safe holidays

Congrats on the win David and thanks for posting. This is truly a meal near and dear to my heart. Meat, taters, gravy, cheese, bacon...I mean come on, what more could a person ask for? You have every required food group in one serving dish, except for maybe the beer :emoji_laughing: Excellent job my friend and a great post.

After making and eating lots of this I had to sit back and watch TV with my eyes closed. After I did the dishes of coarse.

David

Edit : sorry I meant to say this cut of meat is new to me and our stores as of the last year also.

Congrats on the win! As a newbie here and trying to follow the contests, it would be fantastic if every winner had some kind of recipe/description. I’m always looking for a recipe to copy!

Thank you about the win, it was nice. And it is a great batch of food groups all done up in a nice paper dish, lol

I love everything on this also ( well not a big fan of the sour cream , but I dealt with it , as there was lots of beef and onion gravy, and bacon and mashjed potato , well you know lots of good stuff.

Not much on beer but place a little glass of rum of Tequila well i'm all smiles then.

Thanks for the like and the comment Lindy

I normally always post a recipe if I can on any of my cooks/smokes. But almost always the description and how I did it.

This one is mostly just your regular items and made as I went along. If there is anything in particular
that I can help you with , Please just ask and I will try and help you with that.
I still consider myself very new ( Jan. 2021 ) to Smoking and curing meats/foods, But everyone here is very helpful. And makes me want to do it right and safe
But still have some fun.

Sorry I missed this earlier David, that was one hell of a cook and a fine piece of work! RAY

Thanks Ray for the like and the comment

Don't worry about that at all. As long as you found it and enjoyed it . That works for me

It was fun to do , and the roast was great. I have not smoked a lot of beef roasts , but this was hard to stop picking on while making everything for the final pictures
