How to Get Your Roast Beef Just Right!

After I started to make the most of our meals low carb the roast beef is a safe choice.

In the beginning I fried it in the pan and then in the pot, as I had always done.
The problem was that I always felt it wasn’t as tender as I would have liked it, perhaps because the cheap deals on roast beef were not always cut from the best meat.

What do you do?
I thought that after all, roast beef is still one of the best choices for low carb meals.

So I tried different ways to cook roast beef, and I definitely prefer the recipe where I boil the meat!
If you haven’t tried it I’m sure you will think it sounds just as boring as I thought it would be, that is, until I tried it!’
(I have to mention though that I cook it for 5 min.after having boiled it. :-))

tender roastbeef recipe

The boiled roast beef just before I roasted it in 5 minutes and served it.

Give it a try. The meat becomes so tender, it does not provide as much fat in the kitchen, and it tastes good!

Here is how you do it:

1500 g. Roast beef (is laced like a roast)


Add the meat in a pot of boiling water, boil it for 25-30 minutes. (C-temp. 40 degrees meat thermometer, F-temp. 104 degrees.).

Remove the meat, dry it and rub the meat with plenty of salt and some pepper.

Fry browned in butter for about 5 minutes, turn it to make all sides browned.

Place the meat in a dish and let it rest for 20 minutes without covering it.
Cut the meat into thin slices and serve it

If you want to serve the meat cold for lunch or breakfast:

Let the meat cool slightly before being wrapped and placed in a refrigerator.
When the meat is cold cut it into thin slices.

Steak with Vegetables and Beetroot Salad

Here is a great idea for lunch or dinner: Steak with cooked and fried vegetables and beetroot salad.
As you can see on the picture I added some fried sweet potatoes. That is not low carb, I know – but when you don’t have to follow the low carb cure strictly, then this is one of the things you can do and still keep your weight.

Lunch steak with vegetables

Steaks (but chicken breast will do fine as well)Broccoli
Green salad
Greek yoghurt or Skyr


Peel the beetroot and cut it into small bites. Add grated horseradish and Skyr, mix it all and add a little salt.

Cook the cauliflower and broccoli, but only for a few minutes, we want it still to be crunchy.

Fry the zucchini (and the sweet potatoes, if you want that) together with the steaks. Add as much salt as you prefer in your food.

Finally serve it on a dish as you see above, presenting all the different colors, with a leaf of green salad and cut tomatoes.
