2 Hr




pound of roast beef ( this is salom cut style it's has no fat and the meat is so lean) also known as eye of round beef
a good pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper
1 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

preheat the oven to 180c/350f. Get a good size casserole dish that your roast will fit into . The roast I always buy is salmon cut of beef , it's pure lean meat ,maybe with a little fat on the top ,but when cooked it just crisps up on top. place a sheet of tin foil over your casserole dish and place the beef on to that,
season the beef with plenty of salt and pepper . place into the oven , and forget about it now after the first hour bring out of the oven and collect the juices from the meat ,just pour into a wee bowl . With a spoon scoop and dollop of butter on to the meat and spread over the top ,this will keep the meat tender . put the roast back in the oven to cook for an other hour . We like our roast well done ,if you prefer the meat a little pinker just put back in the over for half an hour..
Over medium heat , put the juices from the meat into a small pot .Add to that about 1 & 1/2 cups of water , bring to the boil and stir in about 1/4 cup of Bisto it is a ready made gravy mix ,keep stirring until the gravy thickens up .
Once the gravy has thicken ,turn the heat down to very low and put the lid on the pot.
Once the roast is done ,take out of oven any juice still remaining just pour into the gravy and mix well with a wooden spoon . Start to carve the roast beef and serve with Yorkshire pudding veg and potatoes and a heavy serving of the delicious roast beef gravy ..and enjoy !!
