Life's Good Massaman Roasted Beef


  • Roasting piece of beef (or alternatively, lamb or goat)
  • 2-3 tbsp Life’s Good Massaman Curry Paste amount of paste will vary depending on size of roasting meat - if unaccustomed to spicy food, use less other than more paste (Add Massaman Curry Paste to Cart)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 250-280 C.
  2. Make small deep incisions into roasting piece of meat at intervals all over the surface. As you insert the knife, twist slightly to make each cut into a larger hole.
  3. Push Life's Good Massaman Paste down into holes using fingers or a small spoon if preferred. Ensure all holes are filled then smear any excess over outside of meat.
  4. Sprinkle brown sugar across top surface of meat. This will caramelise during cooking and combine with the paste to create a delicious crust.
  5. Place in oven and after 30 minutes, turn over down to 180 C for the remaining cooking time.
  6. Total cooking time - allow 30 minutes per 500g of meat.


TIP! Once cooked to your liking, allow to rest out of oven for 10 minutes before slicing.
