Roast Rib of Beef au JusFrom chefelaine 8 years ago
How to make it
- Place the meat fat side up in a roasting pan.
- Insert a meat thermometer so the bulb is in the center of the meat, not touching bone or fat.
- Place in a preheated 300°F oven.
- Roast until rare or medium done, as desired, allowing for carryover cooking.
- Thermometer readings:
- Rare: 120°F (49°C)
- Medium 130°F (54°C)
- (Outer slices will be more done than center.)
- Roasting time will be at least 3-4 hours.
- Remove the meal from the pan, tent with tinfoil, and let stand in a warm place 30 minutes before carving.
- Drain off all but about 3-4 oz of the fat from the roasting pan.
- Be careful to retain any juices in the pan.
- Add the mirepoix to the pan
- Set the pan over high heat and cook until mirepoix is brown and moisture has evaporated, leaving only fat, mirepoix, and browned drippings.
- Pour off any excess fat.
- Pour about 1 pt of stock into the roasting pan to deglaze it.
- Stir over heat until brown drippings are dissolved.
- Pour the deglazing liquid and mirepoix into a saucean with the remaining stock.
- Simmer until mirepoix is soft and liquid is reduced by about one-third.
- Strain through a china cap lined with cheesecloth into a bain-marie.
- Skim fat carefully. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- For serving, stand the roast on its widest end.
- Cut down beside the bones to free the meat, and slice the meat across the grain.
- Serve each portion with jus.
- Roast Rib-eye Roll, Top Round, Sirloin or Strip Join
- These cuts may be roasted by the same procedure; roast them on a rack.
- Roast Beef with Gravy
- Roast desired cut of beef according to the basic recipe. Prepare gravy according to your personal preference.
