Total Time: 45 min. – 1 hour  Makes: 4 servings


2 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 teaspoons dried red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon organic chili powder
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons brown sugar (use xylitol with molasses to make)
1 tablespoon sea salt
2 1/2 pound sirloin tip roast


Combine all ingredients except the roast in a food processor bowl. Blend until the nibs break into particles the size of large grains of sand.
Rinse and pat the roast dry with paper towels. Generously cover the meat with the rub from previous step and wrap in foil. The roast can marinate for 6 hours or overnight for a more flavorful taste.
Remove the roast from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place the meat in a roasting pan and cover.
Place into oven for 30-35 minutes until the internal temperature is at least 125 degrees. Let the roast sit for several minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
