Finishing the roast beef with caramelised onions —  40 minutes

Roast the meat beautiful rosé in about half an hour, the internal temperature should be about 55 degrees celsius or 130 degrees fahrenheit for the best result.

Meanwhile heat the large skillet again and add a knob of butter. Saute the red onion slices for about 5 minutes. Add the sugar and cook about 5 minutes more.

Pour in noilly prat or red port and let it reduce on low heat. Season with pepper and salt.

As soon as the beef is properly roasted, it’s best to let it rest for 10 minutes and wrap with tin foil so it’s won’t cool off. Divide the meat into slices with a sharp knife and serve with the caramelised onions and brussels sprouts or other vegetables.
