Nutritional values

With plenty of protein, beef is not only well received by athletes, as we need this nutrient not only for muscle building but also for the formation of cells, messenger substances and antibodies. The meat also scores points with approx. 2.5 milligrams of iron per 100 grams of beef and thus covers a quarter of the daily requirement. We need this mineral for the formation of blood and an optimal oxygen transport in the body.

Leg of beef is one of the highest quality parts of beef, as it is low in connective tissue and very tender - perfect for a juicy roast. The leg of beef is divided into different parts: Upper and lower shell, rump, nut, roll and pastor's piece. In principle, all of them are suitable for roasting, but if in doubt, ask your local butcher for a recommendation. The
malt beer gives the roast a light sweetness, if you like it a bit harsher, you can fall back on Guinness Malta (alcohol-free Guinness). As a side dish you can serve a creamy mashed potatoes and red cabbage.
