Roast beef recipe:
Here is a simple and delicious beef recipe is available due to that you will become a beef chef master for your home family and friends.
- A big chunk of raw beef
- Half cup vinegar or lime juice
- Salt to taste
- Black pepper 1 tablespoon
- White pepper 1 teaspoon
- Paprika powder 1 teaspoon
- ¼ cup oil
- A small piece of Ginger
- A clove of garlic
- A sliced onion
- Mustard powder ½ teaspoon
- Mint leaves
- ½ cup of water
- Oven pan
Season the beef with salt and oil in the oven pan on medium flame from all sides. Let all the sides of the beef get golden brown with oil. When the roast gets browned, add all the dry ingredients to it with vinegar and rub it gently. Then, put it aside for half an hour to marinate.
Pre-heat your oven at 160-degree centigrade, add ginger garlic and sliced onion and mint leaves on the oven pan with beef with ½ cup of water in it. Cover the pan and place it into the oven for 20-25 minutes. Because it’s marinated, all the spices will be absorbed in the roast and give you a delicious smell while cooking. It gives you a juicy flavor that will enhance your roast and make it more delicious.
Place the roast on another pan and cover it at room temperature to keep it warm. While the other ingredients were in the pan, crush it with the spoon. Take another pot. Place this pot on medium flame with two tablespoons of oil. Add ½ cup of water in it and add the crushed ingredients and stir it well for 3 minutes. The gravy should get thick after some time. After that, remove it from the heat. Slice the roasted beef and pour the gravy on it and serve. Finally, you will find a deliciously flavored beef roast for you, your family, and your friends.
If you don’t want to marinate it, skip this step. But keep in mind that doing so will make the meat take one and a half hours to fully cook.
Also, depending on the cooking level you want to achieve, you can take more or less time. For example, it takes 45 minutes for rare and an hour for medium roast according to your taste and desire.
