The other day, I mentioned Levi Roots, and his pot roast beef. I was able to make it over Easter, but am only writing about it now for a number of reasons.
1. I was unwell during the prepping and the making of it, and for quite a while after. Writing about anything, including food, was the last thing on my mind.
2. When I did want to write about it, T held me to ransom. Literally. He had taken the picture using his mobile phone, and he refused to email it to me. Okay, he did not refuse per se, he just took his sweet time doing it.
3. I could have taken his phone and retrieved the picture at any time, but I didn’t know how to. I did hide both his phones the other day in a bid to expedite things, but that’s another post in itself.
4. I wasn’t sure how to put the picture in this post when I did get it.
So there are my reasons.
The beef did not turn out as tender as I’d have liked, but T and Egirl loved it. T gave it a rating of 8.5 out of 10. My taste buds were shot at the time, so I think I did a pretty good job. It’s my first time ever of posting a picture, so I’ll stop here just so I can savour my accomplishment.
Edit! I did think about putting the recipe up, but I felt too lazy to do so. A certain commentator has rubbed this omission in my face, so here’s a link. I have to point out that I used silverside beef instead of topside, maybe that’s why it wasn’t as tender? This blogger also wrote about this dish in far more detail than I have, so enjoy!
Thanks for dropping by. 🙂
