Ingredients
28 ounces Roast beef (ready to cook)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
7 cups green Asparagus (lower third peeled)
1.333 cups Bacon (streaky, American)
2 sprigs rosemary (roughly torn into pieces)
cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
How healthy are the main ingredients?
rosemary

Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 140°C (120°C in a fan oven), 275°F, gas 1.
2.
Season the beef with salt and ground black pepper. Brown all over in 2 tbsp hot oil and remove from the pan. Cook on a rack (over a grill pan) in the oven for around 45-55 minutes, depending on the thickness and desired degree of cooking (core temperature for pink: 55-60°C, 130-140°F).
3.
Wrap each stalk of asparagus in 2 rashers of bacon. Fry in the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan on all sides until golden brown (start with the seam-side down). Season with pepper and sprinkle over the rosemary. Pour in a little stock, cover and braise for around 15 minutes. Remove the lid for the last 5 minutes and reduce the liquid slightly. Season to taste with balsamic vinegar.
4.
Remove the meat from the oven, rest for a short while and serve in slices with the asparagus. Garnish with fried onions if desired.
