Rolled Stuffed Roast with Garlic Mashed and Gravy.. Its one of those “I love you babe” meals to my hubby.. This photo is of his plate.. No veggies required, just extra gravy please.
I have a few different things thawing out in the fridge in regards to our farms meat, one of them was a very small uneven roast.. Those pretty roasts you get at the store are all neatly trimmed, this cut of meat would have most likely ended up stew meat or thin quick cook steaks if gotten at the store.
I was trying to decide what to make with it, I already had a massive pot of potato ready to go, I wanted to put lots of cold cooked spuds in the fridge for later use. Saturday was a cooler day, it was a hunt for the goat morning, a supply run around in town and then a working afternoon with saws, hammers, ladders and screwdrivers. I wanted to be able to put dinner in the oven and forget about it while I got a bit of late fall mowing in. The plants had dropped their seeds and I could finally give that area a trim without effecting next years crop.
I went.. hmm stuffed rolled roast! out came the knife to slice it open, the meat whacker (I used the line side) and flattened it out as much as possible.. it gave me a very uneven piece of meat but I just kept working it till I knew it could come together if it was tightly wrapped in a piece of tinfoil for the baking.. This was not a pretty one that tieing off was going to get the job done.
Made the stuffing and rolled it up and into the tinfoil it went.. rolled tightly, and end side down and into a 375 oven.. It smelled awesome filling the house with this yummy scents. I took some of the potato’s and whipped them into a creamy garlic mashed and made a pot of beef gravy with a mix of the beef drippings/potato water with some bone broth.
Honestly, I should have added veggies to this, but it was late, I was tired and we were having fresh fruit for dessert.. sometimes you need to look at the whole day’s menu’s for balance.
Stuffed rolled roast is a easy way to create a meal that is going to make your meat eaters happy for a moist flavourful dish. Do give it a try!
