  7. 1 teaspoon chili powder

  8. 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

  9. 1 (5 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce

  10. 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Trim the roast of any excess fat, and season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the beef in the hot skillet, and brown it quickly on all sides.
