• Recipe Corner | Basic Roast Beef

May 23, 2018

Elin Parker from Sangres Best in Colorado recently gave insight on her famous roast beef during her interview on 'Shining Bright' the FarmHer radio show and podcast. Listen to the show here and share your roast beef outcome! 



You will see MOL in Sangres Best recipes…that is code for “more or less”.  I avoid recipes that require exact measurements and ingredients.  Living on a ranch in the middle of nowhere has required me to be flexible, adaptive and resourceful in the kitchen.  Often there are people joining us at the table that we had no idea would be there!  Once you get the principals down, you are home free… so relax…it will turn out great with your own personal touch!



Sangres Best will cause you to “re-think” roasts.  A roast prepared any style is one of the best meals for anyone on the go. Throw it in the oven on low heat in the morning and come home to tender, moist, flavorful roast beef with the aroma filling your home and you will be hooked!  It really is one of the EASIEST meals you can prepare and is outrageously excellent. The hardest part is knowing when to stop eating it!


 Sangres Best Roast Beef or Brisket ~ 3 lbs MOL


            EQUIPMENT NEEDED:  Roasting Pan and Lid


  1. Defrost any roast the day before in fridge * Set Oven at 450 - 500 F


  1. Sprinkle with Kosher Salt in advance if you can – either by hours or a day



  1. Season all sides of roast with your favorite seasonings. 
  • Black Pepper, Ground Cloves, Garlic Granules,
  • Herbs i.e. Marjorum, Thyme, Basil
  • Cajun
  • Mexican i.e. cumin, coriander, cilantro


  1. Brown in the oven for 30 minutes with the LID OFF.


  1. Cover meat with chunks or of onion and cloves of garlic (optional)


  1. Place the lid on and reduce oven WARM setting (180 - 200 F)


DO NOT ADD WATER… there is plenty of moisture in the beef.  The roast will not under or overcook at this temp.  If you need it for lunch, slow cook at 250 F and get in the oven by 7:00 am


Remember this cowgirl logic: you can’t push a rope…so don’t rush a roast! Learn more at sangresbest.com.
