And A Life In Between

Roasted beef sirloin with bone marrow gravy

Roasted beef sirloin with bone marrow gravy

A few weeks ago it was my work’s annual staff conference. All the staff across the country get together for a weekend of presentations, team building (and definitely some partying)! Safe to say that come Sunday afternoon when the conference ends, you are totally exhausted and just want to go home and rest.

As is always the case, when the conference wrapped up, I bolted for the parking lot and headed home. Upon pulling into the garage at home, I could immediately smell something delicious was on the go. Trust hubby to spoil me with an amazing lunch!  On the menu was beef sirloin roast with bone marrow gravy and some delicious oven roasted vegetables.  Since we have never had a sirloin roast before – leg of lamb is typically the order of the day – I was very keen to try it.  The roast was totally amazing (the meat was done medium) and the flavour did not disappoint one bit.  The bone marrow also added a wonderful richness to the gravy.  YUM!

It’s really a simple, one tray dish (so a plus on washing up afterwards) that will be a crowd pleaser – comfort food at it’s best.  There is only one caution: it might lead to a leisurely afternoon nap!

12 baby carrots

1 bulb of garlic, cut in half

1 tbsp mixed herbs (dried rosemary and thyme)

4 tbsp olive oil

800g sirloin roast (tied with butcher’s string so the roast keeps it’s shape nicely during the roasting process)

1/2 cup beef stock

Method:

  2. In a bowl, toss the butternut, pumpkin, baby marrows, red onion, red pepper and carrots with 2 tablespoons olive oil, the mixed herbs and sprinkle with salt and pepper

  9. Squeeze out the roasted garlic and scoop the bone marrow from the bones.  Add to the beef stock and stir in to form a gravy.
