2-1/4 cups dark beer (for my choice Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale)
2 yellow onions, diced (about 2 cups)
1/3 cup unsulfured molasses
3 medium cloves garlic, minced
3 T bs. kosher salt
2 bay leaves
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbs. sweet paprika
1 Tbs. ground coriander
1 Tbs. dry mustard
1-1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. kosher salt
In a large bowl, combine the beer, onions, molasses, garlic, salt, bay leaves, pepper, and 1-1/4 cups water. Add the beef, cover, and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, turning occasionally.
In a small bowl, combine the rub ingredients. Remove the beef from the marinade, pat dry, and rub all over with the spice mixture. Put the meat on a rack set in a roasting pan and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
