Beef roast has always been my ‘to-go’ dish given whatever situation I may be in. Couple of weeks ago I was at my friend’s place for a drink and BINGO ! there I am finding my all time favorite beef special.

The beef is marinated and cooked on a slow fire, once cooked then the beef is dry roasted again with the powdered masalas to get the perfectly dry beef roast masala.
