Do you have fond memories of Roast Meat Sandwiches? Those finely cut slices of brown meat stuck between two slices of bread and butter. Used to be my favorite snack during work or play, pop in some greens and consider it a meal. Mama used to pack these for my “Short Recess” in school 🙂
I would recommend doing this as a side dish, this is something to be eaten as a side dish or weekend sandwiches with a dash of mayo mustard and greens. I also like eating it along with some dal rice/ kichdi 🙂 but then i feel it requires a tad bit more spice.
The ox tongue is virtually done the same way and I would choose to do that if you just want to feast on a dish with some poi 🙂
Ingredients for Roast Meat Masala:
1 Onion of Garlic
1 1/2 Inch Ginger
8 – 10 Peppercorns
6 – 8 Cloves
2 Inch Piece Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
1 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
Roast Beef Ingredients:
1 Kilo Beef
2 Tablespoon Vinegar or Juice of 1 Sour Lime
Salt as Per Taste
3 Whole Kashmiri Chilies
2 Teaspoons Sugar
Salt the meat and keep aside
Pound or grind the 5 Spice Masala ingredients, at the time of doing this we had no electricity so a mortar and pestle come to good use.
Once the vinegar is added, apply the spices to the meat
The meat is cut like this so the spices can be put into the grooves and to ensure it gets into every part of it.
Pour some oil into the pressure cooker, when hot add some sugar and wait till its caramelized (becomes brown)
Add the chunk of beef to it and enjoy the sizzle 🙂 Use a fork and keep turning it around till all the sides are
Put some water in the vessel you stored the meat under pressure in so we don’t loose any of the masala and pour it in to the pressure cooker.
You now need to wait for the dish to cool off, so you can start cutting the slices of meat. You don’t need to remove the stock from the pressure cooker we needed the cooker to make another dish 🙂
Once its cut, you can reheat the meat with the stock, or even wait for most of it to dry up. Please note, incase you added too much water this would not be recommended as you will over cook the meat.
Prepared n enjoyed it. Quiet the similar taste to what my aunt prepares..thank u

Thanks Dear for sharing this authentic Beef Roast. This what I was actually looking for. May I request you to also share the Beef Steak recipe. God Bless You Always:) Laur
hi clyde, com este
thanks for all the recipes but i am a senior citizen it would help if get a print, is this possible as I would like to try these dishes which brought back loving memories of my avo.
I would like to try the sausage meat to store in a jar. It would help me a lot as I am not very mobile. Tks
Brings back old memories. Will try this out as soon as I can get my hands on a good chunk of beef
Thank you Clyde, just in time for the weekend coming up. Will definitely try it. Lovely pictures. Thank you, Louise
what cut of beef would you recommend? Will try it out soon
Thank you very much Clyde. Much appreciated.
Excellent work. Thank you for your recipes
Clyde can’t wait to try this. My brother is dreaming of authentic goan beef roast. he will be attempting it in a crockpot. It yields a really intense flavor because of being cooked on low heat for 4 to 6 hours. Keep your wonderful recipes coming. Cathy
Every quick and easy recepie. My family enjoyed it.
just a clarification –
Once its all in close the pressure cooker and turn on the heat, slower the better.
do you close te cooker and put on the whistle and take one whistle on hight heat and then lower or do you keep it on slow fire all the time. for 1 kilo beef would 1 cup water do.
which steak do you use – rump, topside, sirlion,
Thanks Clyde. Prepared the same and we all enjoyed. Awaiting Beef Steak Recipe.
Thanks so much, so easy and so delicious. Keep these great Goan recipes coming!
Have prepared quite a few recipes Clyde and find them very authentic!
Everyone who has tasted the same relish it.
Your Mum is a fantastic cook like your maternal grandmum.
Really nice recipe! My husband loved it..
Hi it was very easy to make the tasty roast beef. Thanks for recipe…
Thank u Clyde, have been looking all over for authentic Goan roast beef the way my mum in law would make but never really liked them as they didn’t taste the same. Glad I can pass on this recipe unlike my mum in law who took it to her grave??
I love to cook, love to experiment also
Thank you so much for your recepie.

I tried this recipe just yummy the only difference since we are goans we always keep the yellow meat masala is what we call it always ready so it was easy for me. My granny prepares this masala as home
