I’ve always considered roast beef as similar to lechon.
To me, it is a show-stopping food that can serve as the central dish of a feast. In fact, when I dined at eat-all-you-can buffets, I usually make a beeline for the carving station to fill my plate with roast beef slices.
I also find it a dish of many possibilities: aside from being a main dish in itself, leftovers can be made into all sorts of dishes. These can range from roast beef sandwiches, beef salpicao, beef stroganoff, roast beef burrito and roast beef cottage pie. Imagine, from one dish, you can have several tasty iterations!
This past New Year’s Eve, I decided to have Chef Resty’s Roast Beef as the centerpiece of my family’s Media Noche Feast.
I used to get my roast beef fix at a Chef Resty’s Roast Beef Carving Station at SM Pasig but, sadly, that kiosk has since closed.
Fortunately, there’s another way to get my fam’s roast beef: instead of heading west from my home to SM Pasig, I instead looked to the east!
Chef Resty has opened a dine-in restaurant at Sitio Elena Events Venue in Cainta. I simply had to call my order in the day before, pay for the roast beef and the in-house delivery fee via GCash and await my slab of beefy goodness the next day.
It arrived way too early from Media Noche, but that’s ok. I just had to reheat it in a 250 deg C oven for ten minutes. It came out piping hot and ready for the fam’s New Year’s Eve feast. It was also accompanied by Chef Resty’s signature gravy which completed the dish.
Each slice was tender, juicy and so flavorful. Clearly, it was the highlight of our celebration!
(Unfortunately, my 1 kilo order of Chef Resty’s Roast Beef was just enough of my small family – who apparently have huge appetites – so no leftovers.)
I can’t wait for the next celebration with Chef Resty’s Roast Beef! How about you?
