Time: 15 minutes (3.5 hours if you need to cook the roast)
I recently organized two Rum Tasting Parties for my hubby and his buddies who drink Rum. It was a lot of fun. Everyone had to bring 2 bottles of rum (we had two lists – an inexpensive rum and a more expensive rum that they had to choose one from each). We had 8 bottles of rum at each party. We blind tested them and it was a lot of fun with surprising results. One thing you need a lot of during a rum tasting – food to sop up the rum! I made these sliders and they were a huge hit…as everybody now knows… Enjoy yet another great Canadian musician!
Music Selection: Leonard Cohen – Everybody Knows
6 lb top sirloin roast
2 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp pepper
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp herbes de provence
Mix all the spices and coat on roast. Preheat oven to 450 deg F. Make sure roast is tied, then place fat side up on a rack with pan underneath. Place roast in preheated oven and cook for 20 minutes, then without opening the oven door, turn heat to 325 deg F. Cook until thermometer inserted reaches about 140 deg F (check after 1.5 hours, but you may need 2.5 hours). Remove from oven and cover in foil, let rest for 20 minutes then shave meat in thin slices.
24 slider buns
4 cups mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, diced finely
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash of paprika
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 cup sour cream
2 cups beef broth
24 slices Monterey jack, Havarti or mozzarella cheese
In pan, melt butter and saute onions, garlic and mushrooms. When soft, add mustard to coat mushrooms, then add in beef stock. Mix well, then add in sour cream and salt/pepper.
Cut slider buns in half and place in deep sheet pan (like a lasagna pan). Place some shaved beef, top with some mushrooms and sauce, then place a slice of cheese. Place top of bun on top. Heat in oven (or microwave for 2 minutes) for 20 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve warm!
