Roast beef and vegetables paella

Craving for roast beef and paella at the same time. I bought the roasted beef from a Kebab restaurant. Came home sliced it to bite size.

Something that you really love to eat and most of the ingredients are at hand reached. This is one of my favourite meal; after I finished eating, I can burp out aloud and there’s no one to offend.

It’s simple, quick, and easy under 30 minutes. There’s no hassle to get a hearty meal for one and yet enjoyable pleasing.


1 c medium grain rice washed in cool water
200 g roasted beef (bought)
2 c beef stock ( bought)
2 1/2 c water
1 medium carrot cut to bite size
1 handful baby spinach washed and dried
1 Tsp ginger powder
1 Tsp ginger powder
1 Tsp paprika powder
1 Tsp garlic powder
1 Tsp oregano dried
1/2 Tsp nutmeg powder
Drizzle olive oil
Drizzle lemon juice
A pinch or two of chilli flakes
Salt and black pepper to taste


Bring rice, stock and water to boil over medium high heat for 15 minutes covered. Stir occasionally. Once boiled reduce heat to medium low. Then add garlic, ginger, paprika, oregano, turmeric, and nutmeg uncovered. Stir again to mix well.

Next add carrots, spinach and roasted beef. Stir to combined well with oil and lemon juice. Switch off heat and let it rest further 15 minutes to absorb a little bit more liquid. Spoon rice to bowl. Sprinkle chilli flakes and lightly drizzle oil a bit. Serve with sweet white wine.

Note: you can use all water instead of half water and stock. You can have any ingredients like seafood. Or add other herbs.
