WHAT KIND OF ROAST BEEF IS GOOD FOR THE HOLIDAYS

  • RIBEYE ROAST is typically used more for around the holidays and has a fine texture.

However you can use whatever type of roast beef you want as all the below cuts do work well for baking in the oven. 

  • RIBEYE ROAST is typically used more for around the holidays and has a fine texture.

WHAT ROAST BEEF IS THE MOST TENDER

  • The Rib Roast

So depending on what you can find in the store it is best to keep all the above in mind.

If the Rib Roast is on sale or it is around the Holidays.

I will splurge and pick that up, however on most occasions I will go for a cheaper cut and it works just fine for us. 

What I like to do is make a Roast say on a Sunday, then slice it thin the next day and make hot “Roast Beef” sandwiches for the next night’s dinner. It allows me to cook one meal and have it for two dinners for us all in one. 

A roast beef sandwich consists of thinly cut beef, mustard, cheese and lettuce on a Kaiser bun.

CAN ROAST BEEF BE PINK

  • Yes, some people PREFER their meat rare. Rare is when you cut the beef in the middle with a knife and it is bright pink in the middle.
  • Well done meat, has no pink inside at all.

So what type of roast are you familiar with making? I encourage you to give this simple recipe a try. 

Really it is not difficult at all to prepare. I like to bake this in a cast iron skillet, however you can do it in a dutch oven or any other type of baking pan.

Also be sure to remove the Roast once cooked from the baking pan and allow it to sit for 20 minutes before slicing and serving. 

You also will have some beef drippings left in the roasting pan, so feel free to add 1 tbsp of cornstarch and 1/2 cup of water in their to create a gravy if desired. 

WHAT TO SERVE WITH ROAST BEEF

  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Gravy
  • A Vegetable of your liking
  • Salad

SPICES THAT GO WELL ON A ROAST

  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Paprika
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Oregano
  • Cayenne pepper

The recipe I GAVE was for a basic Roast, sometimes I will use Rosemary too and garlic powder.

But for this recipe I wanted to keep it simple.

And simple is DELICIOUS too!

IS ROAST BEEF GLUTEN FREE

Yes

HOW TO MAKE ROAST BEEF

BEFORE COOKING LET YOUR ROAST SIT OUT ON THE COUNTER UNTIL IT REACHES ROOM TEMPERATURE. 

You can use COOK Roast beef in your favorite Roasting pan or a cast iron skillet which I prefer. 

  • First you will want to preheat your oven to 375 F
  • Then unwrap your Roast and place it on a large cutting board.
  • If there is string around it, cut it off and remove. 
  • Season generally on all sides with cracked pepper, using your hands to make it stick all over.
  • Then you will want to season it on all side with salt. 
  • Place in the oven on your Roasting Pan on the middle rack and cook anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. It is recommended to cook for “20 minutes per pound”. 
  • Serve and enjoy!

HOW TO MAKE CASHEW CHICKEN SAUCE

Some people use Hoisin sauce in there sauce, I prefer Oyster which makes it less sweet.

  • Oyster Sauce – feel free to use Hoisin
  • Soy sauce
  • Cornstarch
  • Sesame oil
  • Shaoxing wine
  • Chicken stock or Vegetable
  • Sugar
  • White pepper

IS CASHEW CHICKEN SWEET

Cashew chicken should not be only sweet, however there are some places that make it sweet. Traditional Cashew Chicken should have a balance of flavors. Which make it sweet, spicy and savory!
