Beef Roast with Middle Eastern Spices

Recipe: Roast Beef with Middle Eastern Spice Rub


  • 1 kg Grass Fed Roast Beef (such as Blade Roast or Loin Roast)
  • 4 tbs spice rub (see below)
  • 1 olive oil spray
  • Spice Rub
  • 1 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbs ground cloves
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 1 tbs ground cardamom


  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Cut 6 deep slashes into the top of the roast.
  • Combine Spice Rub ingredients and rub all over the meat. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
  • Place meat in roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Roast meat until it is cooked to your preference, basting with meat juices once or twice during cooking. (Rule of thumb is 1 hour per kilo for medium doneness, less for rare, and more for well done.)
  • Rest meat for 20-30 minutes before carving into slices across the grain.

Tip: This Spice Rub mix is also great when sprinkled over chops or steak before grilling or frying.
