Ginger Braised Beef Roast with Hoisin Jus
Here's a different take on your Sunday pot roast... and a really delicious one too. My kids and Kathryn, our spare teenager and frequent dinner guest, particularly liked the beef jus that we served with this roast. It's simply made from the leftover braising liquid that's simmered with Hoisin sauce and soy sauce for familiar Asian flavor that goes so well with the slow cooked beef. All three teenagers at the table devoured this meal in short order, even going back for seconds. We served it with simple stir fried baby bok choy and peppers and some sweet potato mash for a completely satisfying dinner.

Yield: Serves 6 to 8
  • 4 lb beef roast, cross rib or sirloin work well

  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp five spice powder

  5. Remove the meat from the pan, cover with aluminum foil and hold in a 150 degree oven while you prepare the jus.
  6. Pour the beef braising liquid from the roasting pan into a saucepan and skim any excess fat.
