Recipe: Elevated easy pot roast

Dumbbell icon High Protein
Made with a Brilliant Base
Gluten Free
Prep 10 mins/Cook 4-5 hours


Sundays should be for lazing around and while a traditional roast is great, it can be time consuming. What’s more, undercook the beef and many won’t touch it, overcook it and it can be dry.

This recipe avoids all that by slow cooking the joint alongside root veg in our Brilliant Base Bone Marrow Broth allowing the goodness from one to permeate the other. Stick it in the oven in the morning and enjoy the rest of your day.

All you have to do then is cook some roasters and heat through our blanched greens and your day is your own.

Nutritionally, beef is packed with protein and amino acids, carrots have much-needed beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A. The goodness-filled stock is turned into a delicious jus.

  1. Preheat the oven to 100C/210F (fan) or 120C/250F (convection)
  2. Chop your root veg into fairly even sized cubes
  3. Seal the beef in a deep oven-proof dish on the hob, turning to brown all sides. Sprinkle with sea salt
  4. Place the veg and thyme around the joint. Add a splash of red wine vinegar/red wine/ale or stout, a spoonful of red currant jelly/jam and a twist or two of black pepper. Fill the remaining space of the pan with our Brilliant Base Bone Marrow Broth leaving about 1/3 of the joint proud of the liquid
  5. Place in the oven and leave to cook for around 5-6 hours
  6. Remove the beef and place on an oven proof dish covered by a butter wrap or a piece of butter-covered foil
  7. Turn the oven down to 80C/180F (fan) or 100C/210F (convection)
  8. Decant the veg through a sieve catching the liquid in a pan. Place the veg on an oven proof dish. Return the meat and veg to the oven to warm
  9. Raise the liquor in the pan to a rapid boil for 4-5 minutes to thicken
  10. Remove the beef and carve
  11. Serve with the root veg, roast potatoes, seasonal greens (see links below) and the jus
