Grilled Sirloin Roast with Wet Rub

Usually I do a dry rub on our roasts, but I found a recipe that added olive oil to the dry rub – that way it stays on!

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon  pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

I brushed on the wet rub and put our roast on a rack over a cast iron skillet – this way any drippings are caught before hitting the hot coals, and it gets a nice crust all over.

My Mom brought me corn when we met each other for the movie – its seriously so good!

I like mine a bit charred!

If I have any frequent readers, you know Hannah is not a huge fan of red meat.  I bought her the “skinny” chicken breasts and she made chicken tostadas – they looked really good!

she has some serious chopping skills!

While grilling, I may have had a glass of chardonnay – it’s Yellow Tail – cheap, but good!

I love summer!

While I was grilling I was reading my new Eating Well magazine – definitely going to make these quinoa bean burgers with spicy guacamole!
