Cross Rib Roast ?

kjonyou | Jan 16, 2011 11:52 PM

I just bought what is called a Ranchers Reserve (VONS) Boneless Cross Rib Roast.

I realize this is a tougher cut of meat, but I am tired of pot roast and shredded meat. Is it possable to roast this dry like a prime rib if I slice it thin when serving? Google only brings up one that I found that cooked it like a roast.

My thought is to dry brine this in the fridge for a couple of days, wash off the salt, season the exterior with herbs and cook low and slow like a prime rib. Will I going to end of with a half decent tenderized piece of meat or a door stop?

Any suggestions besides pot roast?

This is the only thing I have found that makes me think it can be served this way
