Sorry about that, but yes. At the top of that page is a button "About the Database", selecting that will bring up another page "http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=8964", about half way down is a link "Download the SR26 files for use on your computer.", That's what I used.

That second one seems like an error. The food database, alas, isn't perfect science. Bottom round is usually around 50-60 calories an ounce depending on fat content. I believe Spark should have a more accurate calculation for you.
According to the USDA food database (item 3572) a Beef, Bottom Round Steak of 290 grams (10.23 oz) when cooked - broiled - will yield 223 kcal of energy when eaten. While (item 3573) a Beef, Bottom Round Roast of 600 grams (21.16 oz) when cooked - roasted - will yield 187 kcal of energy when eaten. How can eating twice the amount, of the same cut of meat, result in a 16% decrease when consumed ?
