    Here's a quick one you can use on deer or antelope roast or a hind quarters. This is what we use for our prime rib roast!

    In a backing pan, add a half cup of soy sauce and coffee. Rub with Lawry's seasoned salt, garlic powder, ground Rosemary to taste and 4 Bay leaves on top. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit over night or longer if you prefer! Remove Bay leaves before backing. Bake at 275 uncovered until MR to Med. MAX!
