Simply Delish - Roast Beef




Roast Beef what a treat!

Recipe from Jamie Oliver

Ingredients

1.5kg topside of beef

• 2 medium onions
• 2 carrots
• 2 sticks of celery
• 1 bulb of garlic
a small bunch of fresh thyme, rosemary, bay or sage, or a mixture
• olive oil
• sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

To prepare your beef:



• Take your beef out of the fridge 30 minutes before it goes into the oven

• Preheat your oven to 240°C/475°F/ gas 9

• There’s no need to peel the vegetables – just give them a wash and roughly chop them

• Break the garlic bulb into cloves, leaving them unpeeled

• Pile all the veg, garlic and herbs into the middle of a large roasting tray and drizzle with olive oil

• Drizzle the beef with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper, rubbing it all over the meat

• Place the beef on top of the vegetables



To cook your beef:


• Place the roasting tray in the preheated oven

• Turn the heat down immediately to 200°C/400°F/gas 6 and cook for 1 hour for medium beef

• If you prefer it medium-rare, take it out 5 to 10 minutes earlier

• For well done, leave it in for another 10 to 15 minutes

• If you’re doing roast potatoes and veggies, this is the time to crack on with them – get them into the oven for the last 45 minutes of cooking

• Baste the beef halfway through cooking and if the veg look dry, add a splash of water to the tray to stop them burning

• When the beef is cooked to your liking, take the tray out of the oven and transfer the beef to a board to rest for 15 minutes or so

• Cover it with a layer of tinfoil and a tea towel and put aside while you make your gravy, horseradish sauce and Yorkshire puddings

Here's the linky, you know what to do...







Enjoy
