Succulent litson baka has been all over social media, nudging people to get that mobile phone and order a serving or two.
Have you alsothought about making your own litson baka at home? Order a chunk of beef instead and make one yourself. You have your choice between a roast beef meal that’s cooked in the oven or on the stove. Both will result in succulent beef slices that you might not believe is possible at home!
You will need a good cut of beef to make into a roast. To mimic the litson baka, use at least 1 kilo slab of beef brisket. You can also choose a sirloin cut which is a classic cut for roast beef. Consult your butcher for the best cut for both your needs and your budget.

It tenderizes the meat as well as mimicking the flavor that wine would otherwise add if you were using it.
