Recipe Wednesday

Since I was out of school all week last week I was able to get out of my apartment complex and venture over to C's for 4 days! It was a nice unplanned visit :)

I absolutely LOVE cooking and baking but I rarely have anyone to cook for so I love when C is in town or when I am at his house! This time around I wanted to make him a dish he talks about quite often, English Sunday Roast.

C is very well traveled and this is a meal he has brought to my attention quite often! I was excited to give it a shot! 

English Sunday Roast

1 Prime Rib**Much preferred but I substituted Tender Roast 
2 lbs of potatoes
1 lb carrots
1 Sweet Onion
5 Cloves of Garlic
Red Wine 
3 Tbs Flour
Ground ginger

1. Preheat oven to 325. 
2. In a roasting pan, place 1 cup of water and some red wine (I would say about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of red wine). 
3. Next place sliced Onion and 5 cloves of garlic in the pan. Generously salt the meat and place on top of the onions and garlic. Cook for 30 Min.
4. After 30 Min take out the pan. Take the garlic and smash it all over the meat. Toss in Potatoes and Carrots. Cover potatoes, carrots, and meat with Rosemary and Olive Oil. Take 2 Tbs of Ginger and sprinkle over the meat.  
5. Cook for another 1.5 hours. Check the meat with a meat thermometer. The inside of the meat should be around 130 degrees. Once it reaches that temp, let it stand outside the oven for 30 min. 
6. Drain the juices into a sauce pan and add 1 cup of red wine. Bring to a boil and add in flour to thicken. Let the grave stand for 10 min before serving. Add more wine to thin the grave and flour to thicken it. Be careful of string in the flour so it does not get all chunky! 

The roast is drier than a normal roast, and thats the way it was in England. C said it was very similar to what he had and he really enjoyed the meal! I loved it too :)

Lol I forgot to take a photo of it so this is what it SHOULD look like haha, I cut into it and ate it way to fast to photograph :)

Let me know what you think! Plus, this meal is SUPER easy and doesn't require to much effort!
