Salt Baked Potatoes with Garlic and Rosemary.



Hello everybody.

Roast beef is for lunch today, usually accompanied with baked potatoes and veggies,which were all done in a different way I saw last night on my favorite source of new recipes Pinterest.

First I’ll start with the beef,sealed in hot oil butter mixture at first in a deep pan then I added some onions and garlic and gradually started adding boiled water and left it to simmer for 3 hours. Removed the beef to rest,added some flour to the sauce to make a gravy, so tender and yummy.

As for the potatoes here are the ingredients and method :
* 2 cups salt.
* medium sized potatoes.
* one whole head of garlic.
* some rosemary leaves.
* 1 tablespoon butter.
* drizzle of olive oil.

* in a deep thick oven pan spread the salt evenly.
* place the potatoes, rosemary and garlic after cutting the hard top.
* cover tightly and bake for 40-50 minutes.
* remove garlic to cool.
* drizzle olive oil on top of potatoes and back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
* meanwhile remove soft garlic pulp and add butter to it, I added a bit of yogurt as well to make a bit sour.
* cut potatoes and add garlic spread in it.


Serve with any roast or chicken.


As for the mushrooms, cut them to big pieces then add butter, oil, garlic, lemon juice, capers, salt and pepper and bake them till tender. Add chopped parsley when done.

Roast Beef.

Hello everybody.

Bought this extremely tender roast beef last week and hadn’t got the chance to do it till today,you can cook it in many ways either baked or boiled with vegetables.


This time kids wanted it roasted and crispy,they didn’t even wait to make a gravy or any sauce, just sliced as a cold cut and they made different sandwiches, it was really good and well done.

Ingredients and method:

* piece of tender lean beef.

* some garlic cloves.

* salt and various mixed spices ( pepper ,mixed spices,roast spices,chili…etc)

* olive oil.


* cut garlic to slices and then made a deep cut into meat and insert it all over the piece.

* rub salt and spices all over the roast and leave for some time to be well absorbed.

* heat oil very well then place meat to be browned from all sides very well.

* put the meat on a rack and in the oven for 30-40 minutes till done,you can tell when no juices are out when you pinch it with a sharp knife.

* leave to stand and cool before cutting to slices or pieces according to how you want it.

* serve with sauteed potatoes or vegetables or salad.
