做法 METHOD (10人分)


Preheat your oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6.

  1. 紅菜頭洗淨、去沙,放入一鍋冷鹽水中煮至沸騰,細火煮約50分鐘。

Wash and scrub the beetroots thoroughly to remove any dirt or grit, place in a pan of cold salted water and bring to the boil, then simmer for about 50 minutes.

  1. 同時間,把所有醃料和數少撮鹽用杵和研砵,或用香料研磨器把醃料搗碎,加入數把橄欖油後塗勻在牛肋骨上,牛肋骨放入焗盤中,在已預熱的焗爐中焗1小時。

Meanwhile, put all the marinade ingredients and a few generous pinches of salt in a pestle and mortar or Flavour Shaker, bash them up, add a couple of lugs of olive oil and rub all over your beef joint. Put the joint on a large roasting tray and into the preheated oven for an hour.

  1. 紅菜頭煮好後,趁熱瀝乾、去皮,每部一開為二後放進大碗,加入大蒜、百里香、葡萄酒醋和數把橄欖油拌勻。

When your beetroot is almost cooked, drain and peel while still warm, then cut each one in half and toss all the pieces in a bowl with the garlic, thyme sprigs, balsamic vinegar and a few lugs of olive oil.

  1. 牛肋骨焗1小時後,把牛肋骨從焗盤拿出,把拌勻的紅菜頭撒在焗盤裡。

After its hour is up, remove the beef from the oven and scatter the beetroot halves all around the meat in the tray.

  1. 焗好的牛肋骨應該呈半熟狀態(可自行選擇熟度),焗好後室溫靜置20分鐘。紅菜頭放入焗爐焗30分鐘,至紅菜頭熟透,然後置於焗爐保溫。

Place the tray back in the oven and cook for a further 30 minutes, by which time the beef should be medium and the beetroot perfectly roasted (feel free to cook the meat to your liking, though). Allow the meat to rest for up to 20 minutes – you may need to keep the beetroot warm in a low oven.

  1. 墨角蘭或香芹葉碎切碎,與酸奶油、檸檬汁和芥末拌勻,試味和調味。

Chop the marjoram or parsley leaves and mix with the crème fraîche and lemon juice. Spike well with the horseradish and season to taste.

  1. 牛肋骨放入上菜用盤子後分切,與烤好的紅菜頭、已拌勻酸忌廉和一些烤馬鈴薯一起享用。

Carve the beef on to a large platter with the resting juices. Serve with the roast beetroots, flavoured crème fraîche and some lovely roast potatoes.
