Roast Beef recipe with a sticky Coke and Red Wine Sauce
2 Cups Coca-cola
½ Cup Red Wine
3 Sprigs of fresh Thyme
1.2kg Roast Beef
1 tsp crushed Garlic
Salt & Pepper
Steak & Chop spice
2 heaped tsp Maizena, mixed with some water
2 onions, peeled and whole
Preheat oven to 180˚C. Spray some spray and cook on a roasting tray.
Season meat with salt, pepper, steak & chop spice and garlic. Rub it into the beef. Place on the roasting tray, along with the peeled, washed and whole onions.
Pour the coke and red wine around the beef and place the sprigs of thyme around as well.
Once the oven is preheated, place roast in the oven and roast for an hour and 20 minutes (for well done), turning it every 30 minutes.
When turning the roast make sure you baste it with the juices from the pan. If the juices seem to be evaporating, add some extra coke-a-cola.
Once cooked, allow to rest for at least 20 minutes and slice for serving thereafter.
While waiting for the meat to settle, make a gravy using the juices from the roasting pan.
Place roasting tray with the juices on the stove, heat up and allow to bubble.
Dissolve about two heaped teaspoons of maizena in a cup and gradually pour the maizena into the bubbling juices. Make sure to stir continuously at this point to avoid lumps.
Continue to do this until the gravy is a slightly thicker consistency.
