I have long subscribed to the Gracie Allen method of gourmet cooking.
She was the original deluded diva and I loved her recipe for Roast Beef. I frequently incorporate her system into my cooking with one exception – I know it’s time to take out the roast when my oven looks like a wood burning fire place!
She was also quoted regarding her baked cookies – “This recipe is certainly silly. It says to separate two eggs, but it doesn’t say how far to separate them!”
Here’s the roast beef recipe although it’s a bit pricey.
Gracie Allen’s Classic Recipe for Roast Beef
1 large Roast of beef
1 small Roast of beef
Take the two roasts and put them in the oven.
When the little one burns, the big one is done.
