with roasted beef and garlic salad
Okay, so over the years, I have noticed that there are certain dishes that will always win awards at parties. Bread and dips, yeah! Anything cheese, oh yeah! Sliders, double yeah! So, I had this beef in my freezer and I just couldn’t figure out what to make with it. And then, suddenly, the idea popped in my head. Create an easy roast beef slider recipe that uses just a few ingredients and that will make people lick their fingers at the end. So, I did and I licked my fingers.
I created this easy beef roast slider recipe without the intention to make any time soon. I just wanted to create it, get a feel of the recipe, before committing to it for a gathering and then failing miserably. That has happened before and I was left crying hopelessly on the floor. Not my best moment and since then I always make sure I test all my recipes beforehand. Plus, cooking beef is not my forté. I’m always afraid I’ll overcook it.
This roast beef slider recipe was easier than I thought. I never roasted any beef and I felt slightly out of my league when I saw that I had to tie the beef. I’ve never tied a beef before, but there is nothing YouTube academy can’t teach you. After searching here and there I started tying it in, popped it in the oven, and voilá . . . my roast beef was ready. I have to admit that I originally wanted my beef more medium, but nevertheless, it wasn’t overcooked and it was still soft. Having a meat thermometer is essential though. You see, every oven works differently and every meat is different. Get yourself a thermometer and so you don’t overcook your meat and it comes exactly as you want it to.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Tie the roast and coat it with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, mix the rosemary and garlic with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Set aside
In a skillet, over a medium heat, add 2 tbsp of olive oil once the pan is smoking hot. Sear the meat on all sides and take it off the heat afterward.
Brush the meat with the herb mixture and place the roast, in the cast-iron skillet, in the oven. Let it roast till the thermometer reads 145 degrees (medium) or 150 degrees (medium-well).
In the meantime, add the cabbage mix, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt and pepper into a bowl. Mix well and put aside.
Once the meat is done take it out of the oven, wrap it in foil, and let it rest for 5 minutes. Then cut it into slices.
Slice the buns in two. Add 1 or 2 slices and top it off with the cole slaw. Repeat for the remaining buns and serve.
