THC Infused beef roast recipe

Published Mar 17, 2019 09:22 a.m. ET

One of the best parts of cannabis is that it is easy to infuse into other ingredients that can be used in regular recipes. You should have no problem making your very own infused edibles using methods that you already know and love with a few weeks. Since there is no more widely accepted group meal than a good old fashioned pot roast, we decided to combine an old recipe with a new kick that is sure to impress. Indulging in some weed is great over the holidays, so why not infuse some cannabis into an old recipe, like an old Christmas roast beef recipe. To make THC infused beef roast you will need cannabutter. If you already have your own, then you can skip the first section and move right along to the recipe.

Cannabutter recipe

This recipe can be adjusted according to personal preference. It will make ½ cup of cannabutter and can be made either stronger or weaker by changing the amount of herb that you use.


  • 6 grams of dried herb
  • ½ cup of butter (unsalted)


  • 1 fine mesh strainer
  • 1 layer of cheesecloth
  • 1 small pot
  • 1 stovetop burner
  • 1 mixing tool
  • 1 measuring cup
  • 1 resealable mason jar.
  • 1 grinder


  1. Use a grinder to break apart the dried herb.
  2. Place one small pot on a burner and add in cannabis grind and ½ cup of butter.
  3. Turn burner to low heat and cook for 10 minutes. Stir frequently and do not allow the mixture to burn.
  4. Once ten minutes has passed, you can remove the pot from the stove.
  5. Place your fine mesh strainer over top of one resealable mason jar. Now add one layer of cheesecloth to the mesh screen.
  6. Pour the mixture slowly through the filter to remove all the excess plant material. At this point, all the THC will have been extracted.
  7. Once all the liquid has been run through the filter, you can gently squeeze any remaining liquid from the cheesecloth before disposing of it.
  8. You now have finished cannabutter that is ready to use. If you won’t be using it immediately than allow enough time for it to cool before placing in a refrigerator.

THC Infused butter roast beef recipe

This recipe is seasoned using Worcestershire sauce, butter, thyme, and garlic. This particular one requires enough time to thoroughly marinate before cooking, so it’s best to prepare the night before your meal. While you can use any kind of roast, the best cuts for this recipe are prime rib, striploin, or tenderloin.

Time to Prepare: 10 minutes


Time to Cook: 1 hour and 20 minutes

Makes: 10 or more servings


  • 4 lb (or larger) beef roast
  • ⅓ cup of cannabutter
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • ½ teaspoon of salt (kosher or sea salt)
  • ½ teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of English mustard


  • 1 roasting pan
  • 1 piece of plastic wrap
  • 1 baster

  5. Use plastic wrap to completely envelop the roast before placing it in a refrigerator to marinate. The roast can rest for 8-24 hours in the sauce before it is cooked.
  6. The roast should be removed from the fridge at least 1 hour before you want to get it in the oven.
  7. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  8. Once the oven has preheated, you can place the roast in a roasting pan and cook it for 20 minutes.
  9. After 20 minutes the heat should be reduced to 375 F. Roast for another 60 minutes. During the final hour of cooking, the roast should be basted every 20 minutes or more.
  10. Remove the steaming roast from the oven and then cover it with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  11. Allow the cooked roast to rest for at least 20 minutes before serving.


One roast will make at least 15-20 servings. Seasoned cannabis users should receive no more than 2 servings. Beginners should start with only 1 serving each. The effects may take up to two hours to be felt and can last for upwards of 12 hours.
