Sirloin Roast with garlic and rosemary, mashed potatoes and fresh green beans with bacon and garlic.
I bought the sirloin roast at Sam's Club (I am now a member!) rubbed it down with 2 Tbsp of olive oil, chopped up some fresh garlic and rubbed it in too, sprinkled with a little pepper and topped it off with 3 fresh sprigs of rosemary. And slid that puppy in a 425 degree oven for 10minutes, reduced the temperature to 375 degrees and cooked for 20 minutes for a medium rare! Yum-Yum!
Little tip: NEVER salt beef before cooking. Salt is used as a way to cure meat and therefore pulls moisture out of meat. Salt once it's on the plate, not while it's cooking!
And for the green beans. . . . I cut up two slices of bacon and 3 garlic cloves and tossed in the pan until the bacon was crisp, added the green beans and let saute for about 10 minutes. I like to scar my green beans. . . I like the caramel taste. Added a tablespoon of water, put a lid on and let them cook for 10 minutes, added lots of salt and pepper.
And Mashed Taters. . . . well, you can cook those however you like, but I like a little butter, salt, pepper, and my secret ingredient. . . . cream cheese!
Here are the befores. . . .
AND the AFTER. . .. .
