Sweet Hour of Prayer Giddings searches for community heroes By William “Bill” By Joe Green- Bishop Blair Elite News Staff


Just the other day I received news from a young man in Dallas, Mark Jones, who over the years has become very close to me and my family, that he has lost his father, Robert, to an illness. Mark, an industrious and highly moral young man, has been close to me and my family for nearly three decades. He is somewhat like a son to me. He and my son, Randy, who just left us, were often inseparable. I could feel the bereavement in Mark’s voice as he told me of his father’s passing, only days after we had loss his friend and my son. I comforted him as best I could and urged him to continue the good works that had made his father so proud of him. As I think of Mark’s father, Robert, and any Jordan, I am reminded of the old school preachers who often spoke about there being a slight line before life and death. They talked about how we must live each day that we had on earth as if it were our last because we did not know the hour nor the time when the final curtain would fall from heaven. During the many years that I have lived, I have come to witness the fragility of life, its briefness and its sudden conclusions. That is why I try my best not to harbor any hatred nor ill will towards anyone else. The time that we have here is so brief to do otherwise. I urge all of you who read my column to embrace one another, even if there are difficulties that stand between you and others that appear like mountains. One day, they, too, will melt away and we will be face to face with one another. Life is too short to be bitter or to hold hatreds. It is simply not worth the living. So, Mark, continue on and make your father proud just as you have done for the many years that he was blessed to call you his son. March 16, 2012

Those who know Texas State Representative Helen Giddings well say that one of her greatest attributes is placing the achievements of others before the numerous personal accomplishments that she has made in her own life. Rep. Giddings, whose accomplishments are known from DeSoto, Texas to Durban, South Africa, has recently turned the spotlight on District 109, which she represents, in search for community residents who have made exceptional contributions to others, and who make the district a better place in which to live for all of its residents. “So many people in this city give of themselves and their resources, yet they ask for nothing in return. We believe that their efforts should be recognized and applauded,” said Rep. Giddings who is recognized nationally as one of the most effective state legislators in the country. Rep. Giddings and her s t a ff h a v e c r e a t e d a community program entitled ‘connecting with the community awards.’

Rep. Helen Giddings

District 109 residents are being asked to nominate people who have made special contributions and who are viewed as role models for others. “The individuals can be professionals, non-professionals, teachers, students and others,” said Rep. Giddings. “There is no age requirement and anyone who has impacted the community in a beneficial manner is eligible for nomination. The nominated individuals will be recognized in our monthly newsletter and will also be honored at the State of the District Annual Luncheon. Rep. Giddings said that this would be the first year for the ‘connecting with the community’ awards program in her district. “No good deed is too big or too small as long as it

makes a positive impact,” she said. “These awards will help highlight the outstanding individuals in o u r c o m m u n i t y, a n d hopefully will provide encouragement for others to make substantive contributions.” People who want to make nominations can contact District Director Sherri Gilbert, at sherri.gilbert or they can contact the district office at 1510 N. Hampton Road in DeSoto. A golf tournament is being planned for the fall to raise funds to underwrite the program. A committee has been formed consisting of some of the most outstanding business leaders in the Dallas community who have pledged that they will help Rep. Giddings honor exceptional district leaders and residents. “We are all very excited about supporting Rep. Giddings, her staff and those who will be recognized through the program,” said Clem Maddox, a Time Warner executive who is one of the committee’s co-chairs. “We are reaching out to p e o p l e i n t h e l a rg e r community for their support so that deserving people can be recognized.”

Ask Dr. Hollie Dear Dr. Hollie: I have a five-year-old granddaughter. She is truly a blessing. She is wellbehaved at home. However, when she goes to daycare she acts totally different. It usually happens around nap time (12pm) or later. She sometimes refuses to lie down and be quiet during nap time. She will get up after her teacher has told her not to and skip around the room hitting the other children's cots and making a lot of noise, sometimes waking them up. She hits other students and sometimes the teacher. She will whine and make baby noises. When she comes home after she has acted badly at daycare, she will have her head down. I will talk to her about her day and in a low voice she will slowly tell me what she did at daycare. I will sometimes ask her why, does she know how to act well in daycare, would Jesus be happy with the way she acted.... Her mother works at the same daycare as an administrative assistant and my granddaughter will sometimes be taken out of the classroom and sit outside with her mother. She will act badly even with her mother at daycare. I have talked to her, punished her, allowed her great grandmother to talk to her. All the previous interventions work at home when she misbehaves. The next day at daycare it is usually the same. Please help. Granddaughter in Daycare Dear Granddaughter, Studies indicate that there are children who do not require a nap during the day. Therefore, maybe a more productive use of her nap time would be for the teacher to put on soft lighting and place her with quiet activities at a table. The excessive amount of attention that all are giving to this situation is feeding into her behavior. The adults around will realize that this method is best for all concerned since each child is individual. Dr. Hollie is a Pastor and practicing psychotherapist in the city. For questions and comments, please write to

Our lesson for church school

Notes From Union Hope This past Sunday we deviated from the standard church school lesson to take the time to teach some and remind others of what we as members of the Elder Lloyd T. Morgan National Primitive Baptist denomination believe and teach. We felt it is necessary In light of the fact that there are many churches that describe themselves as ministries instead of churches who have no ties to anyone but themselves and sometimes you can’t be sure of what they believe or teach we are taking the time not to question what others teach but to

inform every member of our congregation so that they might know and understand what we believe and teach as biblical doctrine as a church and denomination. Our youth minister Evangelist Vickie Johnson spoke to our youth encouraging them to avoid bad influence. The morning message was delivered by Pastor L.T. Morgan his subject was “Don’t lose sight of the prize” 2Tim.4:6-8. Paul in what was probably his last letter tells Timothy that he was ready to be offered, to pour out his life as a drink offering to the Lord but he took consolation in the fact that he had fought a good fight, he had finished his course, he had kept the faith, but there was something beckoning him,

encouraging him, comforting him even at that hour, he knew that there was a crown of righteousness awaiting him. Paul always kept in mind that there was a greater reward for believers in the life to come than this world could ever offer. Some have traded the eternal rewards for temporary things, houses, money, fame and we leave all these things behind when we leave this world. Many seem to be seeking the hand of God but not the face of God. Everyone want the blessings of this present world at the risk of losing the crown of life that Jesus promised to those that overcome the allure of this present world. Be Blessed!


Prayer Closet Rev. Clarence Henderson

Do you pray voluntarily or are you driven to pray? Well, I’m like you; sometimes we are motivated to pray, because of a desire to commune with God. There are other times when are driven to pray because of storms in our life. Some of these are; in weariness we turn to God for rest. In weakness we turn to God for strength. In loneliness we turn to God for companionship. In sorrow we turn to God for comfort. In temptation we turn to God for deliverance. In sin we turn to God for salvation. Well, I am convinced that regardless of the contents of our needs, it’s a wonderful thing to have a God to turn to, who is bigger than all our problems.

Sports with Bill

The Dallas Trojans Toliver’s Talents By Mark A. Toliver II Elite News Staffwriter

I now know why basketball fans call it"March Maddness." I have been baptized by basketball this month and it's only the second week of the month! Between the newspaper, Iphone, I-pad, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN the magazine. I have had my fill of basketball. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I find it to be really interesting how the culture of basketball has developed. On Sunday morning while preparing to go to church, I was watching the ESPN show-Outside The Lines.

One of the topics was how could Kentucky build a basketball program when so many of their players go to the professional ranks after just one year of college ball. I don't want to recap the entire program, but I do want to focus on one thing that the basketball coach from Kentucky said, "I just want them to play well in March." There we go with the March Madness thing again! But now after watching all this basketball I understand what he means. The Kentucky coach was talking about tournament play!!! This past weekend came down to which team played best under the pressure of the win or go home concepts that come with tournament play! This weekend you could watch a number of teams from several different conferences try to win the conference tournament so that they get a chance to play in the NCAA

Tournament and a chance at a National Championship! Tournament play at a glance: America East, Alantic Coast, Atlantic 10, Big East, Big Ten,C-USA, MidAmerican, MEAC, Mountain West, Southeastern, Southland,Big 12, and the SWAC! Get the picture? March is full of the drama of win or go home! This is what makes the game of basketball so great.

Tournament play is the cornerstone of championship basketball. Dallas’ Kimball won its second straight State Championship, Flower Mound Marcus won its second State Championship, Arlington Grace Prep won another State Championship! Each team had to win a number of games in order to advance to the Championship Game.-it's easier said than done-ButSee Toliver, page 8

Barbershop Talk w/ Leon Simon Sometimes in an effort to sway opinions ,media types give their version of an event. Thus the public gets a manufactured story and sometimes it changes the pictured totally. There is this illusion that’s media created that makes people think that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever ESPN had a special last week commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 100 points that the greatest basketball player ever scored. Wilton Norman Chamberlain. The greatest basketball player ever and very close to being the best athlete ever period. At 7’ 1” He had a 50 inch vertical leap, which is unheard of for any height. Michael Jordan scored over 50 points 31 times in his illustrious career. Wilt scored over 50 points 45 times in one year. He averaged 50 points for a whole season. That should be the end of discussion. Let’s go a little farther. In March 16, 2012

high school in one game he had 15 points in one minute, 90 points in 28 minutes. Jordan got cut in high school.

Wilt said in his book, A View from Above, his greatest achievement, in his third year he only missed 7 minutes. an

entire season. Fifty-one straight games without missing one minute. Move over Cal Ripkin. Wilt once said, “If a player can lead the NBA in scoring, rebounds, assists, and blocked shots, he would consider him a greater player. Jordan doesn’t fall in all of those categories. The narrator of this television special was one Bill Russell, Some people receive most of their news from Jordan biased publication think Bill Russell could stop Chamberlain. No way! The night Wilt had 55 rebounds was against Russell and the Celtics The late Hank Stram, then coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, worked Wilt out in hopes of using him as a tight end. Wilt ran a 40 yard, in 4.4 sec. with no shoes. In a workout with Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wilt did 30 sit-ups with five 50 lb plates on his chest on an incline bench. This article isn’t long enough to list all of his accomplishments. And if you missed

the ESPN special, “Wilt Chamberlain A View from Above” is the name of the book. If Eric Dampier played out a $97million contract with your Dallas Mavericks in six years. If you compare numbers, Wilt could have played it out in six months. I know there’s a lot of people think that basketball was invented in the 80s, well, surprise! Chamberlain played against Bill Russell, Bob Lanier, Willis Reed, Bob Pettit, Nate Thurman, Zelmo Beaty--most of the Hall of Fame centers. In Wilt’s third year when he averaged 50 points a game, had he played against Sean Bradley, Eric Dampier, Scott Lloyd, etc. you get my drift, he probably would have averaged 70 points a game. 2013 the gem of free agency will be Josh Howard. I wonder who would it be if Michael Jordan and Chamberlain were free agents?

Rollin with a Brother... Welcome to the weekend, Baaaby! Well, the kids have been out for a week now and I've come to the conclusion that parents need Spring Break more than kids. Let's face it, kids get Christmas and Summer vacation, numerous holidays, so it only seems fair. Hardworking parents deserve a break today, but just like the wisdom of the 4 day,10 hour a day week, don't hold your breath,lol! On a not so serious note, I've had a great week. It started Saturday when I was able to surprise my wife Sheila with an awesome couples party for her Birthday. She thought we were going out for a 1 on 1 dinner at one of her favorite restaurants and then a movie. What Bobbi Kristina she got was her favorite friend couples, The Browns, Hobson's, Hoopers, Morrison's, plus our God Kids, Kamron, "The Magnificent" and Ariyah, "The Incredible Papaya" at Red Lobster. Each shared their special interactions with Sheila at my suggestion and cackled with laughter as I said, "I did not expect to hear much from the brothas at the table on that tip",lol. We climaxed the party by telling something God had done for each of us. Expecting a movie, she was then surprised with a romantic overnight stay on the12th floor of the DFW Westin, where you can see the planes take off from your room. Ya Know, I feel bad for Bobbi Kristina after the Oprah interview. You could tell she was shook, by her body language, but trying to hold it together. I hope she does not change her name to Kristina Houston, as she indicated considering dumping her first and she did nothing to deserve her situation! Last week we were tired of the Deion/Pilar Sander saga. Now the Kobe/Vanessa Bryant divorce proceedings are heating up with Mrs Bryant accusing Mr. Bryant of having slept with105 women over their 10 year marriage. That's beyond wanting some variety, 105 sounds like a sex addict out of control. However I'll say it again, who knows what goes on behind closed doors. Rap mogul twice removed, Suge Knight is 46 now...Note to Shug...Grow up! You are too old to be getting popped for weed and unpaid traffic tickets! From the "Ya Can't By Class Department": We find ex NBA-er Doug Christie and his"BasketBall Wives" LA star wife Jackie Christie telling Rickey Smiley's 97.9 The Beat listeners they are going into producing pornogarphy! Christie had a 15 year NBA Common career, seems like they could do something positive with all that cash, instead of promoting negative sexual behaviors... and last names Bobbi Brown. Pray for this young woman's wisdom,that's the truth, Scoop! Happy Birthday to YOU and Celebs this week: Andrew Young 80, Quincy Jones 79, Al Jarreau 72, Sly Stone 68, Erik Estrada 63, Bobby McFerrin 62, Marlon Jackson 53, Darryl Strawberry 50, Rapper Common 40 and Letoya Luckett is 31! Thanks for Rollin With A Brotha in The Elite News, online on FaceBook and my business site, Smokin and Page 8

Toliver, continued from p 7 the question still remains, how do you develop young basketball teams into good tournament basketball players? Dallas -Fort Worth meet my talents for this week: The Dallas Trojan My question was answered on Sunday evening at the MAC sports complex in Lewisville. The Dallas Trojans were playing in a tournament there. When I arrived at the complex I realized that the tournament featured 7th and 8th graders. This was great because I love to watch young players before they get to the High school ranks. But something else happened, I realized that March was the end of the high school basketball season and the start of the AAU basketball season. We have all heard the horror stories about AAU basketball, but I saw something and understood something different about AAU basketball. AAU is the providing the ground for young basketball players

around the country. AAU basketball is where every aspect of basketball is challenged. AAU is all tournament play, each week a player is tested mind, body, and heart! There was some great talent out there in Lewisville this week endTeam Texas, Texas Sun, Texas Lightlin, Houston Defenders, and of course the Dallas Trojan's, This team of Aubrey White, Lorenzo Bennett, Jeremiah Tatum Jr , Jaquan R o y, C a m e r o n H e n d e r son ,Daleon Ward, Jaylon Wooton, Laddrrian Burney, Bryston Cummings, Alex Erby, Coach Irvin Butler Jr and Coach Lang, stood up to the test and fought their way into the championship game. These young talented young 8th graders have played 10 tournament games and have posted an impressive 8-2 record. Both losses coming in the championship game. After playing a thrilling game late Saturday night the Trojan were back at it again on Sunday morning. The Trojan won the early morning game and advanced to the afternoon game, this game was the true

test because the team seemed to be a little tired. The Trojan's dug themselves into a 22 point hole in the second half. The Trojans hit big shot after big shot, they made great passes and played a firery defense that can only be described as a Lock Down. And just like that these young guns erased 22 points down and won by 5 -76-71. It's was one of the greatest comebacks of the weekend! These young men are learning how to play tournament basketball. Their minds, body , and heart are being tested and molded for the next level. (High school) Although the Trojan have not won a tournament championship yet, they have played in the final in each of the tournaments they have played in so far! But the value of what they are learning will prove to be priceless later in their life!! Keep learning how to play Trojans I'm sure we will be watching y'all play for a few years to come!! May God Bless You and Help Us Change The World!

Final Expense Insurance or Lord Help Me Bury My Mama? Has one of your loved ones gone to see the Lord, but the family needed to pass the hat in order for the funeral home to put them in the ground? Let me begin by By Tim Hamilton sharing the good Elite News Staff news regarding Final Expense Insurance, the premiums never change, the coverage is for a life time, and ANYONE can qualify. Facing one's own passing is a difficult

enough ordeal without having the additional burden of not knowing how to pay for final funeral expenses. Final expense insurance differs from standard term and whole life policies, which is why it's often treated like the stepchild of the life insurance industry. These small policies are purchased for the most part by seniors and other individuals who have minimal income and a need for funds to take care of funeral and burial expenses. There are many benefits to purchasing insurance for your own funeral.

Of course, the most important benefit is the financial security of your loved ones. Burial expense insurance usually covers a casket, outer vault, minister, music, headstone, cemetery plot, viewing, embalming, and cosmetology. Final Expense insurance can also cover doctor bills, legal fees, debt, and probate. Flexibility makes Final Expense Life Insurance different from burial protection policies which can only cover the costs of burial. You can buy Final Expense insurance at any age and even if you have health

problems. You may need to get a medical exam before purchasing a policy. The cost of the policies usually depends on medical problems, age, and amount of coverage. Most policies range from $4,000 to $60,000. The best way to determine which policy you will need to cover everything is to add up all of your debt or other expenses that will transfer to your loved ones and then add $10,000 to it. If you have questions on Final Expense Insurance contact Tim Hamilton at 214-207-7847. Excerpted from a presentation by National Assurance Group LLC, an Insurance Agency of Texas.

KIMBALL State Champs

Nuff Said!

March 16, 2012


By Sherry Christian Elite News Staff

Call it déjà vu, vindication or just a plain old comeback and YES even Back-to-Back. There are plenty of words and phrases to describe Kimball’s victory over Yates this past weekend. Silencing harsh critics and shocking the entire high school Basketball world. Kimball done all of that Saturday when they became Back to Back 4A State Champions. The beauty of this victory is that, these are students from different social settings of life, that is what makes this victory that much more impressive. Speaking with Coach Royce “Snoop” Johnson after that 78-75 win over Yates, he speaks highly of his squad and looking at the passion he shared out on the court with his team tells it all. He shares a personal relationship with these boys and lets them know that yes, I want you to win but I want you to love yourself first then the game. Coach said, yearlong this group of kids has found a way to step-up. This time they found a way to win with only 33 seconds left on the clock, and let Dallas Kimball message ring loud and

clear in the ears and hearts JY Lions fans in Houston’s third ward. Kimball left Austin with tons of confidence and the opportunity to gloat—even though the players chose not to after the game. Knowing that they are the 2-time defending state champions allowed them to write their own tickets without saying a word... Kimball used a greatly assembled crew of seniors, juniors and sophomores to dismantle the Lions of Jack Yates, with Torrey Henry #10, two time MVP Shannon Lilly #3 (who scored 9 of his 27 points in fourth quarter) and Darian Hancock #15 all made big shots in the last 33 seconds of the game but we would be re-miss to not mention All-American, All-State and All-world Keith Frazier who led the first half highlights and scoring. In the second half down by five, Henry hit a three pointer to bring Kimball’s lead to 75 Yates 73 with 29 seconds left in the game. Recovering from a missed free throw, Torrey Henry took a pass from Darian Hancock and made a 20-foot 3 point shot right in front of his coach and entire team, which shot provided the turning moment of the game. What was especially sweet and sentimental about this victory is the

Seeing death as Sacred By Joseph Green-Bishop Elite News Staff

He began his career working for some of the finest funeral homes in the Dallas area. Quickly, he earned a reputation for

When Derrick Jennings was 11 years old he decided that he wanted to pursue a profession that frightens many young people. He decided that he wanted to become a mortician, spending most of his time with families that were grieving and with bodies that were motionless. Jennings made his decision after viewing the remains of his grandfather, K.E. Brown, who had been killed and who had spent most of his life raising his grandson with tenderness, wisdom and love. “I went with my mother to make funeral arrangements,” said a MetLife Company l Plan, Underwritten by Safeguard, Jennings who owns Sacred Funeral Home with his wife, Chandra. “I did not even recognize him.

industry. Like her husband, Mrs. Jennings is a graduate of the Dallas Institute. They dated for eleven years before deciding to blend their lives and their professions. “Death is sacred,” said Chandra Jennings. “It is a transition from one life to another. We handle the remains of those who have departed in a sacred manner. That is why we named our business sacred,” she said. Located at 4228 S. Lancaster Road in South Dallas, Sacred has a full-time staff of three professionals and eight part-time employees. Employees at Sacred are encouraged to treat families with tenderness, love, respect and care during their times of bereavement and even beyond, said Mrs. Jennings, whose late father, C.H.

She said that she is still in contact with families who used Sacred’s professional services five years ago. “Our business is based on faith,” said Derrick Jennings. “Running this business has demonstrated to us that God will provide for us and for the people we serve. “We are a full-service funeral establishment that is capable of doing what any other concern is capable of doing,” he said. Jennings said that one of the specialties of his business was customizing funeral services to the lifestyles of the deceased. “We can do that if that is what the family would like,” said Jennings. “We do pre-need, cremations as well as full funeral services,” said Jennings, who at times has had to preach eulogies for families who did not have pastor. “Our motto is ‘where platinum services are rendered,’ he said. “We want people to come to us knowing that they will get service that equals the love that they had for the person they lost.”

From a major wreck to a major check By Ernest Mason Advisory Board Member The Dallas Youth Council

Beep! Beep!” SMAASSSHHHH!!!! Suddenly, my car spins out of control, and my vision goes blank. By the time I regain consciousness… I hear, “Hurry up! Get him out of there before the car catches on fire!” Several men yank open my door and pull me out of the smoking wreckage! Blood ran down my face, and my body throbbed in pain. Soon, the ambulance arrived and rushed me to Methodist Hospital. As I laid in the emergency room loaded down with tubes, needles, and a neck brace; a nurse explained how a truck nearly killed me. She said, “You’ve got fractured ribs, spinal damage, and a punctured lung; so how can you be in such good spirits?” I just let her know… I trusted God to pull me through. To some folks, my wreck seems like another unfortunate incident. But when you develop a closer relationship with The Holy Spirit, it gives you wisdom to… SEE BEYOND THE OBVIOUS. The “obvious” is… I had a wreck. But why? Check out this mind-blowing answer! Consider this. Satan attacks me with A MAJOR WRECK… WEEKS before I launch A MAJOR PROJECT… a magazine project that could draw folks closer to Christ! I had NEVER been in a wreck. But coincidentally, right when I’m launching my first MAJOR project for Christ, I endure my first MAJOR wreck. So basically, Satan used the wreck as a weapon to stop me from promoting the Gospel! But what does the Bible say? “No weapon formed against me shall prosper!” Isaiah 54:17 Later that evening, the doctor entered the room with a smile. The doctor said my injuries should heal in a few months! So I was prescribed some pain pills, and medical staff helped me out of bed. Low and behold… I March 16, 2012

COULD WALK despite my injuries!!! Praise the Lord…. I was being discharged! A male nurse asked if I wished to be carried out in a wheelchair. But I said…. “IF GOD GAVE ME THE STRENGTH TO WALK OUTTA HERE… THEN I’M WALKIN’ OUT!” So like Mike Tyson after a boxing match, I raised my hands towards the sky in victory, and I painfully strolled out the emergency room. With the Lord’s help, I was truly a conqueror. I beat Satan. Satan didn’t want you to get this article. Satan didn’t want you to get this message… but here goes…. “One minute, you could be doing your daily routine & the next minute… an ambulance could be rushing you from an accident scene! Trust me. I’ve always been healthy. Never broken a bone. Never been seriously hurt. Then one day… a car wreck ALMOST killed me! But if I had died, I would’ve known Christ was on my side. So I urge you to experience Christ in your life. Sure, I still struggle with sin from time to time… like going to the club every few months. So I can’t say Christ has perfected me… BUT He has protected me. So I’m alive to share my testimony, and this is just the beginning. Since my wreck, I’ve started serving as a motivational speaker and Advisory Board Member with Councilman Caraway’s Dallas Youth Council. I’ve started working on an inspirational rap album… under the name, E-MAZIN… where I perform at Convention Centers, Churches, Schools, or wherever Christ leads me. And I’ve even had sponsors write MAJOR checks to help me reach youth. So when Satan hits you with an attack that has you flat on your back… let my testimony encourage you to have faith in Christ. Because with Christ in your life; you, too… can go from a… MAJOR WRECK to getting MAJOR CHECKS! Cha-ching!!!! Ernest Mason is a Contributing Writer, Motivational Speaker, and Music Performer.

Taste Test! Irish Roast Beef with Guinness Au Jus Ingredients:

• • • • • • • • • • •

2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle Irish stout beer (e.g. Guinness®) 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 pound small round red potatoes salt and ground black pepper to taste

Prepare 1. Place the beef in a roasting pan and pour the beer over the meat. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning once. 2.

Preheat an oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

3. Remove the roast from the stout and pat dry. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Brown the roast on all sides. Set the browned roast on plate. 4. Crush the rosemary, thyme, steak seasoning, and pepper in a mortar and pestle. Add the minced garlic and stir to make a paste. Spread the paste over the outside of the roast. Place the roast back into the roasting pan with the stout and cover loosely with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours. Add the potatoes to the roasting pan and leave off the foil to let the roast get a crispy coating. 5. Bake to your desired degree of doneness, or an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (65 degrees C) for medium, about another hour. Remove from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area 20 minutes before slicing. 6. Pour the pan juices into a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer until the juices have reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Strain the juices and serve with the beef and roasted potatoes. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
