Roundman's Bacon

Regular, Pepper, Cajun, Salt and Sugar, No Sugar

 

We believe that our bacon taste best when it is baked!!

Preheat oven to 350° - 375°

Place bacon slices on a cookie sheet – we recommend using a non-plastic cooling rack set on top of the cookie sheet, so the juices drip down onto the pan.  Bake for about 7-10 minutes, and then flip the bacon strips.  Continue baking until you can smell the bacon!  This is usually a total cooking time of 15-25 minutes depending on the oven, and how you like it.  Cook until the bacon is a nice golden color.  Cook longer for crispy bacon.

Other recommendations:  add fresh rosemary sprigs, red pepper flakes, cinnamon, brown sugar or syrup to the bacon before baking for added yumminess.

Tri-Tip Roast

 

Tri-tip can be grilled or baked. Up to you.

To grill a tri-tip:  On a nice hot bed of coals, cook the tri-tip for 30-40 minutes, flipping every 3-5 minutes, or flip once at about 15/20 minutes.  When roast reaches internal temp of roughly 125-130° remove from coals, cover and let it sit for at least 5 minutes before slicing.  Always slice against the grain for a tender cut.

To bake a tri-tip:  Bake at 325° for roughly 30-40 minutes.  Then turn up oven to 450° for last 5-10 minutes, to crisp up the outside a bit.  When internal temp reaches 125-130°, remove from oven, cover and let sit for at least 5 minutes before slicing.  Always slice against the grain for a tender cut.

As you slice the tri-tip you will notice that the roast will vary from rare to medium-well throughout – this is because of the size and shape of the roast.

Prime Rib Roast Cooking Instructions

 

Preheat oven to 450°

 

  • Rub the roast with salt and repper to taste

(Additional rubs: garlic powder, rosemary, oregano, or Roundman's Mustard for a nice crust).

 

  • Place roast in oven, rib-side down, and blast for 15 minutes

 

  • Turn oven down to 275° and cook to your preferred temperature (see below).

           115° - 125° = Rare

           125° - 130° = Med Rare

           135° - 145° = Medium

           145° - 155° = Medium Well

 

  • Figure 15-30 minutes per pound depending on the size of your roast and how you would like it cooked.  Prime Rib is traditionally served Medium Rare.  If the center of the roast is Medium Rare, the end pieces will be near Medium Well in temperature.

 

  • When the roast has reached your desired temperature (or close to it), take the roast out of the oven and cover for 15-30 minutes before carving (covering with a kitchen towel works just fine).  The temperature of the roast will rise 5°-10° while resting.
