How to Make Beef pot roast

  • Marinate the chunk of beef with salt and pepper for about 1 hour.
  • Heat the oil in a big pan or pressure cooker and add the chunk of meat to it.
  • Fry on high flame for about 3 minutes, turning the meat on all sides till it changes colour.
  • Add the onions, tomato sauce, vinegar, dry chillies, cinnamon, potatoes and sufficient water and let it simmer till the meat is tender.
  • Strain away any excess soup and keep it aside.
  • Add 2 tbsp of butter or ghee and continue to cook on simmer or low heat till the meat is brown in colour all over and the potatoes too are nicely roasted.
  • Slice the meat and arrange it on a serving platter.
  • Pour the remaining soup back into the pan and mix it in 2 tbsp of flour.
  • Cook it till the gravy thickens, stirring it all the time.
  • Apply this gravy using a spoon on top of the slices of roast and serve the remaining gravy on the side along with the roast potatoes.
