When I was doing my weekly on-line shop the other week a recipe for Beef Pot Roast popped up on the Sainsbury website. It looked like a simple meal to do and perfect for these dreary dull days!
750g silverside beef joint
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 celery sticks, chopped into large chunks
2 onions, peeled and quartered
3 carrots, chopped into large chunks
2 parsnips, quartered lengthways
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
300ml red wine
250ml beef stock
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon dried oregano
- Preheat oven to 180c, fan 160c, gas mark 4. Season the beef joint.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan then add the joint and brown it on all sides. Put it in a large casserole dish.
- Add another tablespoon of oil to the frying pan then brown all the vegetables. Arrange them around the joint in the casserole pot.
- Add the crushed garlic, red wine, beef stock, bay leaves and dried oregano to the casserole and bring to the boil.
- Cover the casserole with a lid and cook in the pre-heated oven.
- Remove the bay leaves and serve the joint with vegetables. We also had mashed potato with ours.
Excuse the size of our dinner, for some reason I’d done extra vegetables to go with it!! It was really tasty though.
