Roast Beef


He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers loves Roast Beef, but hates mushrooms. For a long time this created a dilemma, because I had not told him that his favourite type of Roast Beef is made using a tin of mushroom soup. Did I feel bad about lying to him? No. The difficulty has been in hiding the empty mushroom soup tins from him all of this time.

I eventually owned up to the mushroom soup lie, but only because I had to. Surprisingly, in a great example of mind-over-matter, He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers has continued to eat Roast Beef without further comment.

1 kg roasting beef

1 packet French Onion soup mix

420gm tin mushroom soup ( I like Campbells brand)

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Lay several large pieces of aluminium foil crossways in the bottom of a deep oven tray. Place the beef in the foil.

Mix the French Onion soup mix with the mushroom soup and pour over the beef.

Wrap the foil around the beef  and seal tightly, then bake for approximately one hour.
