There’s nothing like providing a room of hungry people with a meat roast. However, the value of bigger pieces of beef may soon add up, with top roasts frequently blowing the budget. I wanted to choose a roast that would appeal to a large group of people without breaking the bank.
The greatest cuts for roast beef are those from the tenderloin. These cuts are taken from the back along the spine of the cow and don’t require much effort from the cow, resulting in more soft meat. The following are some of the cuts:
The rump roast, round roast, or sirloin roast all can be used in this classic roast beef recipe. Over harder pieces of meat, slow-roasting on low heat works wonders, resulting in a soft meal you’ll enjoy!
How to Make Tender Roast Beef: Go Low and Slow
I start by browning the roast at a high temp for flavor, then lower the oven temperature and roast the beef “slow and low” for a couple of hours.
This low-heat slow roasting method is ideal for tougher chunks of beef because it avoids the gristle from becoming too rough. This method of prep is simple, affordable (in comparison to other types of beef), and yields excellent leftovers for roast beef sandwiches.
How to store leftover
If you believe you’ll have leftovers, I recommend chopping pieces off the roast as you serve it to keep the leftovers intact. In this method, small slices of roast beef may be sliced off for leftover roast beef sandwiches!
Use an airtight container or a big sealable freezer bag to store any leftover roast meat. It’ll last three to four days. You may eat the roast beef cold if you don’t want to overcook your leftovers.
Preheat the oven to 250° F (120° C) to reheat the roast beef. Place the roast on a baking pan and wrap it tightly with foil. Turn off the oven after it has hit the temperature. Place the roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes to finish cooking.
Can I freeze?
Ensure the roast meat has completely cooled to room temperature before freezing. I recommend wrapping it tightly in plastic wrap and foil to prevent freezer burn. It can be frozen for up to two months.
To reheat the roast, store it in the refrigerator and allow it to defrost slowly. This might take 1-2 days, depending on how much you have leftover. After the roast has thawed, reheat it according to the instructions in the section above.
