Ditz Roast Beef




This is a recipe from my grandfather’s sister, Pauline Mai, who was a great cook. I have tweaked this recipe to what it is now and used it several times. It is packed with flavour and simple to make.


Collect it:

• 1 Kg beef, cut into slices, not too thick, not too thin

• 4 onions sliced


Masala for marination

• 1 tsp turmeric

• 1 tsp red chillie powder

• 1/2 tsp pepper powder

• 3 pieces of cinnamon (the size of a red chillie)

• 7 cloves

• 11-12 pepper corns

• 6 big Kashmiri chillies

• 3 sour limes

• 1 1/2 tbsp garlic ginger paste

• 1 tsp soy sauce

• 6 green chillies smashed

• 1 tsp tempero cheiroso (optional)

• A dash of feni / rum

• salt to taste


Make it:

Marinate all the above, preferably overnight. I marinate the meat for as long as seven days. The minimum time is two hours.


Slice 4 onions finely and fry them till brown


Add the meat


ADD NO WATER


Cook for 1 whistle + 20 minutes on slow gas
