The easiest ever recipe for a roast beef that cooks directly in the pan, without turning on your oven. Pan-searing the roast beef allows you to have a meal ready in about 40 minutes. A few high quality ingredients are the good starting point for most of the recipes. Especially when it comes to meat or fish as star of the dish. Here, a good quality meat is enhanced by the subtle flavour of the herbs and a drop of white wine. This roast beef recipe passed on from generations to my mother-in-law as a family well kept secret. It’s a special moment when a new family begins and finds the union of two recipes traditions, like in my case.
Here in France (and in Italy as well) the butcher sell directly a meat chunk called “roast beef”. However, you can use also filet (a little more expensive) or silvertop. If the cut comes without any fat on it, I suggest to add a little extra lard on the side to give more flavour, as you see in the photos.
This easy pan-seared roast beef is a naturally gluten free and paleo recipe. Most importantly, this traditional meat dish is a good idea for a dinner with friends, you can make it in advance and lightly warmed up at the right moment.
