High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
I left my 3.3 lb eye of round roast out on the counter for an hour to come to room temp, then brushed lightly with gravy master liquid, let it soak in a bit, then blotted with paper towel so it wouldn't overpower and would still crisp up on the outside. Like others, I used extra seasoning (s&p, onion powder, garlic powder, celery salt, paprika powder), set my gas oven for 500, put the roast on a rack in a roasting pan, reduced the heat to 475 for 23 minutes, then reduced the temp to 180, for an hour. I checked after that first hour and my instant read thermometer was just above 130, exactly where I wanted it (we like rare beef, but not bloody). I took it out and let it rest under foil for around an hour. It was a perfect pink throughout, and crispy on the outside! I also used the "Beef Au Jus" recipe (slightly tweaked) from this site. Delicious!

Beef Au Jus
Easy, solid recipe. I didn't have to add many seasonings, as the meat drippings from my roast beef were very flavorful. I did deglaze with a splash of sherry before adding beef stock, threw in a pinch of thyme, finished with a tbsp of butter. I wasn't sure if I wanted to skip the roast and just drink the jus!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
I used a 5 lb. pork shoulder cut, used a light rub, and 3 cans of root beer. It made my house smell sickly sweet when it was cooking. When it was done, I dumped the liquid, fork shredded it, and mixed in Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and put pack in the crock pot for another hour. It has a strangely sweet smell and after-taste, similar to cream soda..? I'm still trying to find a way to salvage it. Maybe it was because the root beer came out of a can, but I'm not going to try it again. I'll have to pass on this recipe.
