BEEF POT ROAST WITH MASHED POTATOES
1 kg Beef from the “Round Portion” or “Top Rump part” (Full piece not chopped)
1large onions cut into quarters
1 teaspoon pepper powder
½ teaspoon mild chillie powder (For colour)
2 tablespoons vinegar
Salt to taste
3 or 4 tablespoons oil
3 large potatoes pealed (Whole potatoes)
Wash the meat and rub it well with the vinegar, salt, chillie powder and pepper. Leave aside for 1 hour.
Add the oil in a pressure cooker, and add the whole portion of meat.
Sear the meat by turning the meat on all sides till it changes colour.
Add the onions, potatoes and sufficient water and cook till the meat is tender.
Open the cooker and continue to simmer on low heat till all the soup dries up and the meat is nicely brown all over and the potatoes too are nicely roasted.
Serve hot or cold with bread and Vichy Carrots
Note: The same recipe can be used for making Mutton or Lamb Roast as well.
