Perfect Roast Beast with Outer Spice

One of my favorite holiday traditions is watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

“…he even stole the roast beast.”

And seriously, how could he not?! Roast Beast, or as you normal folk may better know it as: Roast Beef, is my favorite meat. It is so tender and succulent… the way it melts in your mouth and pairs with potatoes, carrots, and onions… Oh how I love it!download

Normally when I’m making a roast I have several bottles of seasonings scattered about. This year my holiday roast beast is made simpler – and yes better – with Outer Spice. Instead of five or six bottles of spices I only have one. That one bottle is full of organic spices that take any dish to wow. There is even a no salt option available for those with sodium restrictions. I’m a huge fan of Himalyan Salt and that is what Outer Spice uses. Score!

Outer Spice was founded in 2010 by Ben Stevens. They have four different varieties available:

and you can get them from the Outer Spice website. They also have some mouth-watering recipes you will want to have a look at when you are on their website. To get my super succulent roast beast you can find the recipe below. The secret is the slow roasting process – it truly is to die for!

Each jar of spices is packed full of goodness. There are no half full/half empty jars here. Each of the spices used is also high quality and again, organic. I loved that each jar came individually wrapped so nothing was broke during the shipping process. There was so much care put into this Baker’s Set that I could feel the love behind it!

Too cheesy? Okay, I’ll try to contain myself.

Kaina Organics Baker's SetI could smell each spice as I unwrapped the glass jars. The Kaina Organics Apple Pie Spice was by far the best smelling. It was one of those take me back to my roots aromas and I loved it. It took me a while to decide on what to make first, but ultimately I chose cinnamon rolls (find the homemade cinnamon rolls recipe here). The cinnamon sugar mixture was perfect for making them. The taste is out of this world too; I can’t wait to experiment with more of the spices – especially the apple pie spice! I can already taste it!
