Have you ever grilled a roast? The beef flavor intensifies and the texture is more like steak than a traditional pot roast. Once you try it, you will be reluctant to cook a roast any other way. The balsamic marinade helps tenderize the meat and gives it tons of delicious flavor.

  • Tenderize roast with a meat tenderizer or a sharp knife on both sides, all over. This will press the marinade down into the meat creating a more flavorful roast.
  • Cover and refrigerate 4- 8 hours. 
  • Remove from refrigerator when you start your grill fire. Use oak or hickory for best smoke flavor and bring grill up to about 350°.
