What's for lunch today, that is a paleo sandwich. A paleo sandwich is homemade deli meat topped with cucumbers and accompanied with the meat is carrots and tomatoes. This is a lunch time favorite as it is easy to eat on the go.
Recipe for the Roast beef:
I round grass-fed beef round eye roast (approx 4 lbs) *
Olive oil or melted coconut oil
Favorite spices (thyme, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
For the Paleo sandwich you need a few large cucumbers, lettuce, shredded carrots, sliced bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and your favorite condiments
Rub the meat with the oil and spices
Cover it and let it sit outside the fridge for about 1-3 hours to bring to room temperature
Preheat oven to 500 F
Bake the meat at 500 for 20 minutes
Reduce heat to 300 and cook for an additional 30 minutes or until desired doneness. Check the inside temperature by inserting a meat thermometer in the center of the roast. For rare remove the meat when the thermometer reads 120 F, for medium rare remove at 125 F, 135 for medium, and 140 for well done
Remove the roast from the oven, cover with parchment paper and let stand for about 15 minutes before carving
Cut the meat against the grain into thin slices and eat warm.
If you are making deli-style roast beef for sandwiches, wrap the meat with plastic wrap, refrigerate over night of for a few hours and then cut into very thin slices
For the paleo sandwich
Peel the cucumbers (optional)
Remove a thin slice lengthwise from the side of the cucumber, this will prevent the cucumber from rolling
If the cucumber is to large to comfortably bite into it, cut a slice out from the middle and reserve to make another sandwich with it.
Scoop the seeds out of the two outer slices and fill with the meat and other fixings.
Serve and enjoy!
