Mini Pot Roast Bites

On Chesil Beach opens with our newlyweds, Florence and Edward, trying to eat the nuptial dinner.  Flashbacks of their courtship are interspersed as they nervously watch their meal being prepared in their room by two solicitous but clumsy waiters.  The tension continues to mount as they sit down to beef with boiled potatoes, carrots and peas.   This is recipe is a little quicker than making an actual pot roast.

Mini Pot Roast Bites - The GBY

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time15 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time40 mins

 12 oz Baby Potatoes, I choose a bag of mixed colors
 3 oz Baby Carrots
 3 oz Boiling Onions, small
 2 cups Red Wine, cabernet
 4 oz Rare Roast Beef
 Sour Cream (optional)
 Horseradish Cream (optional)

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2

Place the baby potatoes on a cookie sheet. Cook for 20 – 25 minutes until tender. Remove from oven to cool.

3

At the same time, place carrots and onions in a sauce pan with the wine. Bring it to a boil and simmer until tender.

4

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half. Using a small melon baller, scoop out a small amount of potato. You may need to take a small slice off the bottom of the potato so they can stand upright. Chop the carrots and onions up, small dice. Spoon the mixture on top of the potato half. Top with a small piece of beef. If you want, just a small dollop of horseradish or sour cream to finish it off.
