The OC Diet – Healthier Than Most?

When it comes to the cuisine in the OC and throughout Costa Mesa, you may be surprised to find out that many people believe our menu’s and favorite’s are some of the healthiest! Many reporters and foodies have visited the OC area only to find out that it’s much easier to find stores and restaurants that serve a variety of healthy choices without skimping on flavor and upscale presentation! People are starting to call this the OC diet because it features fresh foods with a lean towards the organic and all natural.

This is a great piece of news for Costa Mesa and OC residents because it means that we don’t have to look far to get a better quality of food than many people have access to. Because California offers a year round growing season and a great climate for people to focus on raising extra healthy meat products, we really are fortunate!

All natural meat is one of the local Costa Mesa OC diet favorites since it allows us to enjoy the classic ‘left coast’ menu without adding hormones and other artificial ingredients to our menu.

No matter what you love to have on your plate, try switching it up to take advantage of the many healthy food options we have here in Costa Mesa. The best? Meat! Check out Celestino’s meats where you can find one of the largest selections of top quality all natural meats ready for you to create your favorite meals! You can also find home made sausages, gluten free jerky, ready made lasagna, and more!

Perfect Costa Mesa Roast Beef Recipe

If you love roast beef like we do, you’re going to really love this great recipe we just found! This method of preparing your Celestino’s roast beef takes about 3 hours, so this is a delectable dish that may be best suited for a weekend night dinner.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 to 3 1/2 lbs Rump Roast (let us know you’re making a roast and we’ll give you the best cut!)
  • Extra virgin organic olive oil
  • Garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper
  • Red wine or beef stock (water works well, too!)
  • Corn starch

Here’s how to make the roast:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F
  • Make 8 small cuts around the roast with a sharp knife, put a small sliver of garlic into each slice to help infuse the garlic aroma and flavor into the roast.
  • Use a tablespoon to pour and then rub olive oil all over the roast.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over the roast to taste.
  • Place the roast right on the middle oven rack, fat up, with a drip pan underneath it.
  • Cook the roast at 375°F, then drop the heat to 225°F and continue to cook for 1.5 to 2.5 hours. The roast is usually finished when the internal temperature hits 140°F

Here’s how to make the gravy:

  • Place the drip pan on your stove top over medium heat. Add the red wine, beef stock, or water to help loosen the drippings.
  • Dissolve the corn starch in the glaze mixture completely. Stir quickly to avoid clumping.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste!
