Heavenly good tender full of flavor holiday roast beef.

There is a myth that holiday roasts are super hard to cook, but I´m here to tell you that I have a roast beef recipe that will easily turn out amazing. The only thing you need to have is patience. But while you wait until the full-of-flavor holiday roast beef is done, you can do so many things.

ingredients for the full-of-flavor holiday roast beef

  • Roast beef.

    You can use a Rump roast, Whole Sirloin, or Striploin kind of roast beef. Make sure to buy high quality organic roast beef.
  • Celery.

    The celery is going to add a lot of flavor to the green marinade. I use two fresh celery sticks.
  • Onion.

    As we want a green marinade, I use yellow onions. But you can add red onions instead.
  • Garlic.

    4 fresh garlic cloves for an amazing flavor.
  • Parsley.

    A handful of parsley
  • Thyme.

    I use fresh thyme, but dried thyme works as well.
  • Lime.

    The Lime juice is going to add a sour touch to the sauce. It’s amazing.
  • Rosemary.

    Same thing here, I use fresh Rosemary, but you can use dried Rosemary if this is what you have.
  • Heavy cream.

    The heavy cream is going to round up the sauce.
  • Olive oil.

    High-quality extra virgin olive oil.
  • Salt.

    Sea salt is an amazing option for this recipe.
  • Spices.

how to make the perfect tender roast beef

any tips?

  • Prepare the marinade the night before cooking, and of course, marinade the roast beef the night before. Put the marinated roast meat in the fridge overnight.
  • Before cooking the roast beef, make sure it has room temperature.
  • Cut the slices in thin slices if you want the roast beef to tender faster.
  • The roast beef will taste even better days after.
