This is the kind of meal you want to eat in front of an open fire on a cold night, the house will smell of lemon and oregano, you'll have a glass of red and be completely ravenous, its perfect winter comfort food.
I really love slow cooking, its so satisfying when it reaches its destination and becomes mouthwateringly meltingly tender. Jay loves this dish, in the winter when I'm at work on a Sunday he'll cook it and I'll come home tired after an early start and a long day to the perfect antidote, food glorious food, not cooked by me!
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp dried oregano
1.2 kg beef blade roast
2 lemons juiced
Preheat oven to 140 fan.
Whisk together oil, lemon juice and oregano in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add beef and turn to coat. Place beef and marinade in an oven bag and use tie to seal tightly. Place in a baking pan and bake for 3 hrs until beef falls apart.
Take out the beef and let it rest under some foil. Pour marinade juices from oven bag into a small saucepan. Simmer for 8-10mins until slightly reduced. Carve, tear the beef pop on a platter and pour over the sauce.
