Beef Roast is the most favourite food among the Keralites. Though I havent had beef since my childhood for almost 25 years, as I was in Mumbai and Beef wasn’t available at our place. I started consuming beef after coming to New Zealand. I learned different recipes, tried a lot myself, experimented and here I am with a super delicious beef recipe which is a hit in my family.

This recipe goes well with kerala parotta, rice, neichoru( ghee rice), kappa( cassava).
