Bronzed Bag of Beef

bronzed beef

This healthy looking meal in a bag is one of those tasty, loyal, never-let-you-down kind of recipes.
Although the meat and vegetabls are in a bag, the bag doesn't act as a 'sunblock'. The transparency of it allows the meat and vegetables to 'tan' to a perfect shade of dark brown. They say there's nothing quite like a bronze-tanned piece of oiled beef!

  • 4 parsnips, cut into 2 inch chunks
  • 8 baby beetroot
  • 2 red onions, cut into quarters
  • 1 lb baby onions
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup oil
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • coarse salt
  • 1 large transparent cooking bag
  • 4.5 pounds roll of beef (rubbed with roast beef spice)


Place all the vegetables with the thyme in a bowl and coat with the oil. Sprinkle with the sugar and coarse salt.
Place the vegetables into a large cooking bag together with the meat. Roast for 2 hours at 180 Deg. C/ 350 Deg. F
Don't turn or touch the meat as it may squash the vegetables.
Serve with rice and peas.

TIP:  Ask your butcher to spice the roll of beef with Bbq or roast beef spice. Carrots, cubed butternut and baby potatoes can also be added.
