Broccoli Beef with Tamarind Molasses Lime Sauce

Two weeks ago for dinner I was planning to make a broccoli dish out of my cookbook Tender, by Nigel Slater.  I absolutely love this gorgeous cookbook.  It’s so well put together — the photos, the writing, and of course, the recipes.  Reading and perusing through the book makes me want to jump into author Nigel Slater’s garden.

Pot roast is such a great cold weather dish to make on the weekend.  Start it early in the day to let it cook low and slow.  Don’t rush it.  This cut of meat benefits from slow cooking.  You can even make it a day ahead and reheat it the next day.  We eat the leftovers all week long.
