1. Prepare Roast Beef like a Chef
You need a well-hung piece of roast beef. Get the meat from the butcher, preferably one week before preparation. The roast beef should be matured for at least three weeks so that the meat ends up on the plate tender as butter. Let the butcher vacuum the meat, put it in the fridge at home and let it mature for another week.
2. Marinate Roast Beef
Professionals prepare the marinade for the roast beef the day before. Unpack the roast beef, wash under cold running water and dry. Apply the marinade to the meat with your hands or with a brush and wrap or cover with cling film. Put the marinated roast beef in the fridge.
3. Prepare the Roast Beef in the Oven
There are different variants for it, two of them I would like to introduce to you briefly:
3.1 Roast Beef Low Temperature
Preheat the oven to 120°C, top and bottom heat. Brown the meat in a pan or in a roaster from all sides with a little vegetable oil. Wrap the meat in aluminium foil and place in the oven. You should now expect a cooking time of 45 to 60 minutes per kg of meat.
3.2 Roast Beef in the Oven quick Variation
Preheat the oven to 220°C with hot air. Brown the meat in a pan or in a roaster from all sides with a little vegetable oil. Wrap the meat in aluminium foil and place in the oven. After 15 minutes, reduce the temperature to 150°C and continue cooking the roast beef to the desired cooking temperature.
4. Roast Beef Core Temperature
A good variant for the safe preparation of roast beef is a core temperature thermometer. Here is a useful table with temperatures and cooking degrees.
Note: Once the roast beef has reached the desired degree of cooking, you can insert the meat in one piece at approx. 70°C (top and bottom heat) on the middle rail and keep it warm in the oven for up to 30 minutes. Leave the meat wrapped in aluminium foil, please.
5. Roast Beef Side Dishes and Sauces
