Tips for a successful Roast Beef
The meat must be out of the fridge about 30 minutes before beginning preparation.
Do not salt the roast beef before cooking as it will dry faster,
Use the technique of red meat rest after cooking,
Vary the accompaniments: green vegetables and starch vegetables, as well as some garlic you can roast along the meat.
Preheat the oven
Before preheating the oven, the cooking time should be determined. The standard for the calculation is a quarter of an hour per 500 grams of meat. For 600 grams of meat, you’ll need to cook between 15 and 20 minutes. When cooking time is fixed, we can begin to heat the oven at 430 ° F (220 ° C).
Meanwhile, peel the garlic cloves and remove the seeds by a cut in the lenghtwise direction. Complete the cuts in large pieces and insert them into the incisions made on the roast beef. Finish preparing the meat, basting with olive oil, thyme and remaining garlic.
Cook the beef
Go to cooking stuffing all for fifteen minutes or more depending on the amount of meat.
After that, remove the roast beef from the oven and remove the string and the bard. Finish cooking by heating for 5 minutes. The cooked roast beef can be covered with foil to extend the cooking without drying the meat.
Present the dish.
Then it is presented on a platter on which it is allowed to stand for 5 minutes. The roast beef is cut into thin slices to be served with various accompaniments such as fries, salads or vegetables.
