The salt crusted roasted beef is taken out of the oven after the internal temperature reach 58 °C because the internal temperature still increase about 3–5 °C (5–10 °F) after it is removed from an oven.  The salt crusted beef roast meat should be allowed to “rest” for at least 5-10 minutes before being served, which makes the meat easier to carve and its structure firmer and more resistant to deformation; its water-holding capacity also increases and less liquid is lost from the meat during carving to the guess.

Now were talking about Alergic, an allergy is an overreaction of the immune system to a substance that’s harmless to most people. But in someone with an allergy, the body’s immune system treats the substance (called an allergen) as an invader and overreacts, causing symptoms that can range from annoying to serious or life threatening. In an attempt to protect the body, the immune system of the allergic person produces antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). Those antibodies then cause mast cells and basophils (allergy cells in the body) to release chemicals (including histamine) into the bloodstream to defend against the allergen “invader”.

The tendency to develop allergies is often hereditary, which means it can be passed down through your genes. However, just because you, your partner, or one of your children might have allergies doesn’t mean that all of your kids will definitely get them, too. And someone usually doesn’t inherit a particular allergy, just the likelihood of having allergies. But a few kids have allergies even if no family member is allergic. And a child who is allergic to one substance is likely to be allergic to others.

  1. Beef meringue…Chef Dedy, seriously, open a restaurant already! Also thank you for talking about gluten free. I know a few people who can only eat gluten-free food, so hard for them to eat outside.

  2. Wow that was a logo of work but just gorgeous. I have never tried a salt encrusted beef before. Here in Hong Kong they do a clay encrusted bird with lots of herbs and spices and it is just amazing. they crack it open at the table and it is very dramatic! Sharing, of course!

  3. Oh, I will be making this soon. I love salt crusted fish, so why not beef! It also makes a fun presentation at the table. Thanks, Dedy! I will report back after I make it.

  4. What a unique recipe Dedy! Meringue on a steak? WOW! Beauty comes in strange packages. This is one of those recipes that one MUST try because it’s just so different and hard to imagine, but then you pictures make that part easy. 🙂
