Smokey Roast Beef Sandwiches

I love roast beef sandwiches, especially when they have that smokey flavor. But who has time to pull out the smoker when  you are craving that rich taste? Enter liquid smoke – I love the stuff! I use it on everything.  Here’s a pretty simple recipe that will tickle your mouth and satisfy that craving for a good roast beef sandwich.

What you need:

  • 2 pound Tri tip Beef Roast
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup bottle barbecue sauce


How to Do it:

Mix all the spices together in a bowl.

Mix the liquid smoke with the barbecue sauce and pour onto the roast, rubbing to make sure you cover the whole thing.

Pour the spice mix on and rub all sides of the roast, cover, and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours.

Place the roast on pan with a rack and cook at 325 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes, or just before it reaches the desired doneness.

Move to the broil and broil on high for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

Slice in thin slices and serve.

Serves 4-6
