Brooklyn Beckham ridiculed over ‘heart attack on a plate’ roast dinner
| Last updated
The aspiring chef, 23, teamed up with former Michelin cook Kevin Lee for a new tutorial shared with his 14.7 million followers.
But just like his previous recipes - like his ‘experimental’ gin and tonic cocktail - people have been left stunned after seeing the former photographer take on yet another classic.
The step-by-step video left viewers confused by the amount of butter and oil used for the meal, whether the rib roast was ‘raw’ and even if you should drown crispy roast potatoes in gravy.
It’s fair to say the meat isn’t the only thing getting roasted.
Brooklyn began by using two slabs of butter to slather a large dry aged rib roast after mixing it with garlic and herbs.
After he put the beef in the oven, the pair began preparing the potatoes which were doused in oil and beef fat to make them ‘really crispy’.
Carrots were also prepared with oil and butter and after all the components were paired together on a dish, Beckham and Lee tucked in.
“Just like how I have it in England. The best Sunday roast.”
But not everyone agreed. One Instagram user criticised the treatment of the spuds. “Why do people pour gravy on the roast potatoes that [you] spent ages getting crispy," they complained in the comments. "Nooo. Just nooo. Otherwise looked great but needs some greens [and] cauliflower cheese... [And] stuffing... And I stop lol.”
Another person complained about the amount of butter used. “Looks lovely but the amount of butter would put me off lol”
A third declared: “Wayyyyyy too much oil!!”
While a fourth penned: “That looks very raw.”
Another Instagram user joked: "Heart attack on a plate."
One follower quipped: "Might as well bite the cow while it's grazing."
Beckham - who is the son of David and Victoria Beckham - often shares his takes on classic recipes on Instagram.
He has been cooking for Instagram videos over the last couple years as he shares tips and new recipes with his followers on regular meals like burgers and sandwiches.
Nicola Peltz's husband launched his own food show on Instagram, called Cookin' With Brooklyn. The basic premise is that he visits some of his favourite haunts and speaks to the chefs before having a go himself at their style of cooking.
