Mama’s Famous Roast Beef

This dish is dedicated to my Mama Claudia who has made the yummiest roast beef I have ever had. I remember that this was a staple we would often enjoy with friends for a Sunday meal πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³

I would watch her slice the juicy pink meat and steal a piece when she would look away (I guess I always knew what’s good πŸ˜‰) and was amazed how something so simple could be so tasty!

Today my mom showed me how simple it is to turn a great piece of meat into a nourishing meal, thank you Mama πŸ₯°

You only need a handful of ingredients to feed 2-3 hungry humans 😌:

1) a grass fed and finished beef tenderloin roast, (about 2 lbs) πŸ₯©

2) grass fed tallow or ghee for frying 🍳

3) flaked sea salt and black pepper for seasoning πŸ§‚

4) grass fed butter for serving 🧈

Begin by preheating the oven to 450Β°F and heat up the cooking fat in an oven safe dish.

The meat has a healthy red coloring and fat profile

Next, sear the meat on each side until it’s a nice brown color, then season it with salt and pepper and pop it into the preheated oven

Searing on all sides to seal the meat to ensure that the moisture is retained

Cook the meat for 20-30 minutes depending on how well you’d like it done. I prefer mine rather rosey so I cut off a piece after 20 minutes and put my parents back in. The meat does continue to cook after you remove it so beware and I would tend to take it out sooner than later πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³

Lastly, thinly sliced it against the grain and serve with the meat juices and grass fed butter 😍

The sauce is super yummy too !
