Beef is a dietary staple for many. The meat is rich in protein and iron and can be taken with a whole assortment of vegetables. Roasted beef is particularly great because it has lower calories when compared to other forms of beef. Roasted beef tastes delicious and is very flavoursome.
So if you know how to roast beef to perfection, here are some exciting recipes for you to try out with roasted beef.
Garlic Roast Beef
This recipe is a flavourful twist to the classic roast beef recipe. To make your aromatic garlic roast beef, you need 2 – 3 lbs of beef, thinly sliced garlic (5 to 6 cloves), kosher salt, oil, finely ground pepper, and dried rosemary (2 teaspoons).
First, make deep incisions into the meat and insert the garlic slivers inside the cuts. Next, spray the olive oil on the meat and rub the seasoning. Preheat the oven to 350-degree Fahrenheit and place the meat in the oven. Adjust temperature based on how well you want your meat cooked (rare or medium). Serve the meat after a few minutes of resting. Garlic roast beef tastes best with a side of mashed potatoes.
Roast Beef Sandwich
For the best beef sandwich, you should first learn how to roast beef to perfection. Beef sandwiches are made with freshly baked brown bread or baguette. You need roasted beef (sliced or chunked), sliced onions, ground black pepper, Swiss cheese, oil, and salt for the sandwich.
Heat your skillet in medium flame and stir-fry your onion slices with salt and pepper. Wait till the onions turn golden brown. Cut open the brown bread and place the slices of the roasted beef on one side of the baguette. On another side, sprinkle the caramelized onions generously.
