What kind of meat for

Roast Beef? I have been aproached by my church to do a roast beef dinner for the vestry. Any idea what cut of meat to use and the best way to fix it? There will probably be 50 people attending. Thanks for any help.

Bill: I would go with a steamship round if you can get one, that's your best bang for your bucks, It's mighty tasty too! Use a beef base to keep it moist in pans, I use Minor's.

I heard Arby's inject their roasts with unflavored geliten. Thats how they can slice it so slim and not have it fall apart into little pieces. Don't know if it's true but I could see it happening.

I go to my local wholesaler or grocer and buy the rarest "roast beef " I can find, slice it and just before i serve it I dip it in hot beef broth...
