Roast Beef

Roast Beef

Roast beef is the classic Sunday dinner. Served with heaps of creamy mashed potatoes. Bowls of peas, carrots, sauteed greens or maybe green beans. Plates with Yorkshire puddings hot from the oven, warm dinner rolls, or maybe a cornbread dressing. Last but not least is sauce boat of gravy, and smaller dishes of horseradish. Leftovers become sandwiches for work the next day.

Cuts of beef for a roast beef include: rib roast, top round, eye of round, tri-tip, sirloin tip and chuck. They should roasted slowly to a medium rare. Allowing the roast to rest for about 20 minutes before serving keeps the meat juicy, and allows you time to make an amazing gravy.
