How To Make an irish sunday roast .

  • 1
    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..
