DIFFICULTY
Easy

Browning meat before cooking gives it a more complex and delicious flavor.




Ingredients for 4 people


Beef roast and fillet
Italian extra virgin olive oil
a pinch of salt.



The process of browning is done to caramelize the natural sugars in the meat, creating a crisp, flavorful layer on the outside.


Preparation

1
Begin by brushing the meat to be roasted with extra virgin olive oil.

2
Put it in a very hot, non-stick pan without oil.

3
If necessary, add a little oil directly onto the meat during cooking.

4
Initially, keep the heat high and then adjust it during cooking.

5
Tilt the pan back and forth so that the oil slides over the surface of the meat and the pan.

6
From time to time press down on the meat and flip it using tongs, being careful not to puncture it.

7
The meat should be uniform in color.

8
Salt the meat only at the end of cooking so that it doesn’t release its juices.

9
Follow the same steps to brown a fillet.

10
The browning process is done when the fillet is a light brown, hazelnut color.
