Preparation steps

1.
Spice-Crusted Beef with Chives preparation step 1

Scrub beets and cover with cold water in a pot. Add caraway seeds and season with salt. Bring to a boil, then cover pot and cook over low heat until beets are knife-tender, 50-60 minutes.

Meanwhile, lightly toast fennel and coriander seeds in a dry pan over medium heat until fragrant and darkened. Remove from pan, let cool slightly and coarsely crush in a mortar or chop with a large knife. 

3.

Rinse beef and pat dry. Season lightly with salt and roll in crushed spices, pressing to adhere.

4.

Heat oil in pan over high heat. Cook beef on all sides until browned, then transfer to a baking sheet. Roast on middle rack of preheated oven at 100°C (fan: not recommended, gas: mark 1) (approximately 200°F) until medium-rare, 40-45 minutes. (If you want the meat well done, cook another 15-20 minutes.)
