beef joint (at room temperature), potatoes, carrots, onions, oil, gravy granules, vegetable oxo cube, goose fat, salt pepper, italian herbs, yorkshire puds
This was our flat meal before we all disappeared for easter holidays. Although lamb is normally traditional beef is very easy and liked by all my flatmates!
Start by preheating the oven to 240c. Roughly slice 2 carrots, 2 onions and crush a couple of garlic cloves, place in the bottom of a baking tray with some oil, italian herbs and a crushed vegetable oxo cube. Season the beef with salt and pepper and place on top of the veg. Put into the oven and immediately turn down to 200c, cook the beef (1.5kg joint) for 1 hour 15 minutes for medium rare. Now start peeling lots of potatoes, par boil for 20 minutes then put in the oven on a baking tray covered in goose fat and salt and pepper for 45 minutes. Once the meat is done lift out to rest for half an hour before serving. While the meat is resting, start the gravy. Gentle fry an onion and once cooked simply add gravy granules. Keep the veg warm and if you need cook some more. Pre bought yorkshires take about 5 minutes, serve with cranberry and horseradish and enjoy!
