Harry Potter Roast Beef Recipe
Piping Hot Beef Roast!
Making sure that the beef is on room temperature, open it's wrapping.
Sprinkle salt on all sides and wrap it again.
Preheat the oven to 190°C
Pat dry the roast using paper towels and make 8 to 10 incisions around it using a sharp knife.
Add a sliver of garlic into each incision.
Rub the roast with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper as well.
When putting the meat in the over make sure the fat side is facing upwards.
Place it on the oven rack with a pan underneath for the drippings.
Initially keep the temperature to 190°C till it browns.
Once you see that colour, reduce the heat to 107°C and let it cook for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours.
When you see the drippings from the browned roast, check the temperature.
You can remove the roast once it reaches the temperature between 57°C to 60°C
Put the roast on a cutting board covering it with a foil to keep it warm.
Rest the meat for 20-30 minutes.
Once well rested, slice the meat to serve.
For making the gravy, put the drippings in a saucepan over medium heat and add wine as well.
If you have a less amount of drippings, you can add some butter.
Once the wine deglazes the drippings, dissolve a tablespoon of cornstarch in some water and add it to the sauce.
Stir it as the gravy thickens.
Add salt, butter and some thyme for freshness and flavour.
