Oven Baked Asado
- 4½ lbs. Asado meat (cut into big chunks (2 kg))
- Olive oil
- 2 yams (roughly cut)
- 3 potatoes (unpeeled and roughly cut)
- 2 onions (roughly cut)
- 1 garlic head (unpeeled, whole or apart)
- 6 shallots
- 5 thyme sprigs
- 3 rosemary sprigs
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- ⅓ cup date syrup
- ¾ cup water
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. turmeric
- 1 tsp. sweet paprika
- 1½ tsp. coarse black pepper
- Place the pieces of beef in a frying pan with preheated olive oil. Sear a few pieces at a time until the beef reaches the desired color.
- Grab your baking pan, oven-roasting pan, or wide pot, and throw in the potatoes, yams, onions, and other vegetables. Put the seared Asado Beef in the pot/pan on top of the veggies.
- In a bowl, thoroughly mix the turmeric, paprika, soy sauce, date syrup, water, and salt. Pour the mixture over the contents of the pot. Now, sprinkle some black pepper on top.
- Cover the pot well with aluminum foil or a lid. Place it in a regular baking oven (preheated to (150°C) and bake for 4-5 hours.
- Check periodically to see if you need to add a splash of water. After 4 hours, check if the beef has become tender. If it hasn’t, continue to bake your Asado for an additional hour or two at a lower temperature.
- Once the Asado is tender enough, uncover the pot and let the beef bake for a minute or two to give it that tasty-looking brown aesthetic.
- When buying the beef at the butcher’s, make sure to ask for Asado meat. This meat is fattier, and in turn, juicier.
- You can use potatoes, chestnuts, or mushrooms as an alternative to yams.
