Paleo Rosemary Roast Beef Recipe
This paleo rosemary roast beef recipe is so simple to prepare that it’s suitable for a weeknight. I’ve got some tips that will help you put the finishing touches on your meaty masterpiece once it gets out of the oven.
If you don’t have a meat thermometer, it’s time to buy one! They are so helpful for determining when your meat is ready to eat.
For roast beef, a temperature of 125ºF is considered rare. Medium is 145ºF, and 160ºF would be well done.
Keep in mind that the meat will continue to warm about 10 degrees in its post-oven resting state, so if you’re aiming for medium you need to take it away from heat before it reaches 145ºF.
You’ve Earned Some Rest – So Has the Roast
Even though your paleo roast beef will smell amazing and make you want to dig right in, patience is a virtue. The meat needs to rest when it gets out of the oven.
15-20 minutes is the optimal time to ensure the juices are distributed evenly.
After the resting phase is over, you can begin making thin slices of the roast beef. Make sure you cut against the grain. Your meal will be much tastier – not the stringy, dry beef of your nightmares.
