Valentine’s Day is approaching fast! A romantic dinner for two at an expensive restaurant may be the typical Valentine’s Day date, but why not make it extra special by cooking a home-cooked meal from the heart from you and your sweetie? With delicious, high quality meat from Three Butchers Hong Kong, your private dinner for two will truly come from the heart. Try this delicious roasted beef rib eye recipe that Three Butchers Hong Kong found just in time for Valentine’s Day.
First, preheat your oven to 200 C. Tie your fresh beef from Three Butchers Hong Kong with individual pieces of string every 5 centimeters. Brush the beef lightly with oil and sear it on all sides over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Season the beef with pepper and salt and rub fresh thyme and sage over it. Tuck a few sage leaves under the string for taste.
Next, place the seasoned beef on a rack in a roasting dish. Add about ½ a cup of water to the roasting dish to keep it juicy. Roast for 60 minutes if you like your beef rare, 75 minutes for medium beef, or 90 minutes for well-done. Use a meat thermometer to double check your roasting time as different ovens will vary in cooking temperature and length.
Remove the roast from the oven, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 20 minutes before carving. This will let all the juices and flavors really soak in. Carve up your delicious roast beef meal and serve along side some roasted vegetables from your local market and a glass of your favourite red wine.
