Roast Beef with Apple and Balsamic Gravy

Roast Sunday lunch is not just a traditional dish, but also one of my favourites!

Today I want to show you few secrets to give a personal touch to your Sunday roast making two different sauces with Malpighi’s IGP Silver Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. One of them is a thick and delicious gravy, the other one is an apple and balsamic vinegar sauce. The perfect combinations for your meat and roasted potatoes!

The Malpighi’s IGP Silver Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is obtained from cooked grape must and only 30% of wine vinegar. Aged in oak barrels. It has a rich brown colour with an intense but balanced aroma and a lingering fruity flavour with hints of wooden shades. A product 100% made in Italy by the Malpighi Family. All production phases, from the grapes cultivation to the final product are checked by Ermes Malpighi – the fourth generation of the family and Master Taster AED. This fantastic condiment is suitable for all types of food; especially as a salad dressing, on omelettes, desserts, ice creams, fresh fruits and cheeses. It is also delicious on fish and crustacean, with fresh or cooked vegetables and on boiled or roasted meats including game.
