I get a lot of cooking questions from a lot of places, and this weekend I had a friend who was set upon roast beef perfection.
He seasoned his roast and did nothing in particular fancy to it. When he took it from the oven, he let it rest, and said it was heavenly, carved for dinner. Then he went to slice the remaining roast...and was alarmed by the shimmering rainbow on the sliced meat!
Have you encountered that, or seen it in the deli? It is perfectly safe, and it actually indicates that you REALLY did the roast RIGHT. The rainbow is a refraction of light on the proteins of the meat, and is not any indication of spoilage.
I thought it was a great question, and my friend was delighted to know that he HAD actually created roast beef perfection. Now I want to try...LOL!
