Cooking roast beef involves a few ingredients and a simple recipe. There are various kinds of beefs available in the market and each of them is cooked differently.

  • 3-4 garlic cloves (Finely chopped)
  • Cooking oil
  • Salt

How to Cook the Perfect Roast

The cooking procedure is as follows:

  • Set the oven’s temperature to 250 degree Celsius
  • Grease the beef joint properly with cooking oil.
  • Sprinkle some salt and pepper on it.
  • Also sprinkle some flour on the beef and make sure that it is spread evenly all over the joint. Flour is used to make the beef crispy.
  • Now pour a spoon of cooking oil in the baking tray and add the beef. Place it in the oven and ensure that it is cooked properly from all the sides. Also add the chopped garlic and onions and cook them with the beef.
  • Cook the beef for about 20 minutes at the temperature mentioned above.
  • Then lower the temperature to 180 degree Celsius and cook the beef for another 15 minutes.
  • It is recommended to baste the beef at least two-three times while cooking. For this, you shall have to take out the meat from the oven and mix it well with it own juice. Basting is done so that the beef becomes soft and moist.
  • You can pop in a skewer in the joint in order to check whether the beef is cooked properly or not.
  • The beef’s colour would turn pink or red when it is cooked.
  • You can then take it out from the oven and place it in a plate. Cover it with foil and keep it at a warm place for around an hour.
  • The roast beef is now ready to be served.
  • It can be served with gravy and seasonal vegetables.

Delicious Roast Beef

Cooking roast beef in oven is easy and less time consuming. However, you can also cook roast beef in a crock pot. Preparing roast beef in crock pot takes around 6-8 hours. The method of preparation of roast beef in a crock pot is as follows:

  • Sprinkle salt, pepper, onion powder and seasoning on the beef joint.
  • Fill half the crock pot with water and place the beef in it.
  • Now cook the roast beef in the pot for 6-8 hours at a low temperature.
  • Beef cooked in the crock pot is soft and tender.
  • The liquid which is left in the crock pot can be used as sauce. This sauce enhances the taste of the roast beef.
  • Serve hot with squashed potatoes.

Delicious roast beef can be prepared with both the recipes mentioned above. You can try the crock pot recipe if you have enough time, else you can prepare it in an oven.

That sounds delicious! I never cooked roast with flour on it before. Sounds like it might be just the thing for a crispy crust.
