Clover Meadows Beef

  • 3 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Black pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin.


  • Mix all of the ingredients together. Use 1-2 tablespoons of a dry rub for each pound of meat. Apply the rub directly to the surface of the meat.
  • After applying the rub, cook the beef roast as desired. Basic guidelines for making roast are as follows: brown the roast on all sides to seal in the flavor. Braise with liquid, like beef broth, and add root vegetables to pot. Cook in either slow cooker, pressure cooker, stove top, or oven. If it’s a 4 lb roast, it will usually be done in 3 to 3 ½ hours when cooked at 300 degrees.  However, the only way to be sure a pot roast is done is to use an instant read thermometer. The USDA recommends an internal temperature of at least 145°F to be considered safe to eat. Learn more about how to cook beef roast
