Beef Pot Roast

Beef pot roas image

Many may say this is the perfect winter warmer, a delicious one-pot roasted beef joint with vegetables. At this time of year it goes down a treat. The recipe uses Silverside of beef.

Silverside is taken from the hindquarter and is a large, lean, boneless cut of meat with very little marbling of fat and a wide-grained texture. It gets its name from the shiny silvery membrane covering its internal surface.

Next time you are out shopping why not look out for some silverside of beef ... 

For a delicious beef pot roast here is what you need and do:

Serves 3
750 g silverside beef joint
2 tbsp olive oil
2 stick celery, chopped into large chunks
3 carrots, chopped into large chunks
2 onions, peeled and quartered
3 clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
300 ml red wine
250 ml beef stock
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp dried oregano

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Season the silverside of beef joint well.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan then add the joint and brown it on all sides. Put it in a casserole dish (making sure it’s large enough to fit the joint and all the vegetables).

3. Add another tablespoon of oil to the frying pan then brown all the chopped vegetables. Arrange them around the joint in the casserole pot.

4. Add the crushed garlic cloves, red wine, Beef Stock, bay leaves and dried oregano to the casserole and bring to the boil.

5. Cover the casserole with a lid and cook in the preheated oven for 2 hours, turning the meat over halfway.

6. Remove the bay leaves and serve the joint sliced with the vegetables.

Tip: soak up all the lovely roast juices with buttery mashed swede on the side.

Now you're talking, yum yum. I'm a big fan of brisket for these type of meals, cooked slowly I don't think you can beat the taste, absolutely delicious.

For certain cuts of meat I think the secret is slow cooking, brings out such taste.

Have a good weekend, although weather not too brilliant at the moment!

Roast beef is just the best thing ever. I'm not a great veg eater so cooking in a onepot meal isn't my thing but serve with yorkshires and I'm in heaven!

Roast Beef is such a favourite, I just love vegetables with mine ... so a one pot meal is popular.

So delicious! My family loves when I make this. But it's been awhile. I should consider making it soon now that the extremely busy period at our place is coming to an end.

Lowcarb team member said...

You have certainly been very busy these past few weeks.
Why not make one of these, then sit, relax and enjoy it ... just a thought!

Take Care

Not a drop of dairy in my ruta-mash, but we could have got you some to add to yours.
