Roast Beast!

A lovely roast beef from Mitchell's.  I salted, peppered and cooked it at 300F for an hour and a half. New potatoes with butter, salt and gravy. The veggies were steamed, cooled and reheated in olive oil. A little salt and pepper to finish.  

I put the roasting pan on a burner and added a teaspoon of flour, 2 tablespoons of butter and melted that together. I didn't cook it much but scraped the pan a lot to get the flour out. I whisked nearly a cup of milk into it and brought that to a simmer.  I added a little bovril beef stock powder and a little black pepper. Tasted it. Heaven!

The gravy was such a treat, it made the whole meal. That roast didn't hurt either though.
