Spiced Beef With Veg Recipe

One of my Mum’s recipes that she was given in the early seventies, still a family favourite! This is great for using up left over roast beef.

Serves 5, 4 oz of meat per person.

Ingredients

566 grams (20 oz) Roasted Beef sliced.

1 tbsp Worcester Sauce

2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup

4 tbsp oil (vegetable or olive)

2 tsp English mustard

1 tsp Sugar

Instructions

Blend all the ingredients (not the beef!) in a bowl.  Lay the sliced beef out on baking trays and cover with the mix.  Leave it to marinate for 30 minutes.

Bung it in the oven at 425 degrees F and cook until it’s sizzling and hot.

Serve with new potatoes and veg (cabbage, carrot etc).

Yummy!!!

Recipe Experiment

We have an ongoing argument with many recipe websites.  These arguments come about because they website formats the page in a strange fashion or includes two items.  Like this recipe from ITV.com where they have Chicken Madras and onion hajis on the same page.  This makes it a real ball ache to try and import to MyFitnessPal for calorie tracking.  So, I have stolen the recipe and am copying it here to see if it will import any better.  This has been modified to suit us as two people rather than the 4 persons from the original recipe.
