How to make Beef Roast?

Kerala Style Beef Roast Recipe | Traditional Beef Roast | with step by step photos & video. I generally make use of a pressure cooker to par-cook the beef first. This meat is then mixed with onions, ginger, garlic, chilies & curry leaves that have been sautéed in a generous amount of coconut oil.

The beef is allowed to slowly roast on a low flame till it is dark and melt-in-your-mouth tender. The longer you cook the beef, the darker and tastier the beef fry turns out. A cast iron pan or an earthen pan are the best choices to achieve a dark crust on the meat, but any thick-bottomed pan will work in a pinch. A generous sprinkling of homemade garam masala made with spices like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, star anise, black pepper, and cumin seals the deal.

Furthermore, do check out my other non-veg recipes. Additionally, I had already shared a beef recipe with coconut pieces. Hope you would like them.
