10 Roast Beef Dishes for the Carnivore in You
We’ve chosen the best versions of this meaty goodness.
(SPOT.ph) Roast beef seems like an easy dish on paper, but mastering this beloved comfort food is no easy feat. You have to choose the right cut of beef, spice the meat well, cook it perfectly so it comes out moist and tender, and whip up the extras: gravy, vegetables, carbs of choice. It’s practically a labor of love, but when you do get it right, all your efforts will be worth it.

Slow Roasted Truffle Beef Belly from Stella
Stella’s roasted beef belly might be covered by a blanket of olives, mushrooms, gravy, and other ingredients, but the meat’s flavors still shine through.

Angus Roast Beef Meal from Rodrigo’s Roast Beef
This unassuming restaurant in the heart of the South may not look like much from the outside, but one bite of their Angus Roast Beef will have you coming back again and again.

The best part, though, would be the price: for only P258 for unlimited sides, you just can’t go wrong here.
Slow Roasted Herb U.S. Roast Beef Fingers from MoMo Cafe
MoMo Cafe’s roasted beef fingers have a lot going on, but it’s a great option if you’re looking for comfort food with a twist. Tender ribs rest on a bed of roasted vegetables, with mildly spicy gravy tying it all together. The corn on the cob and the onion rings, meanwhile, provide the perfect textural foil.
S. Roast Angus Beef from The Beef Barn
If you’re in the market for a filling, budget-friendly meal, the Beef Barn’s Rice Meals are a great option. Their Angus Roast Beef Rice Meal is a crowd-pleaser, with an irresistible smoky-savory profile. Tone down the meat’s robust flavor by dipping it in the accompanying gravy!
