Cooking Instructions

For a joint with 2 or more bones consider cooking from start to finish in the oven and make sure to remove the meat from the fridge 1 hour before cooking.

RARE: 15 MINUTES PER 500G MEDIUM-RARE: 17 MINUTES PER 500G MEDIUM: 20 MINUTES PER 500G

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C and calculate the required roasting time using the guide above.
  2. Place the joint into a deep roasting tray so that it is standing up on the bone. Pat the surface of the meat dry with kitchen paper. Using your hands, coat the surface of the joint with a little oil, just enough to allow seasoning to stick, then season with salt and pepper (if using). Make sure you season just before you put the joint in the oven, otherwise the salt will start to draw out moisture, creating a wet surface and making it harder to get a decent crust. Place into the oven, and roast for 20 minutes.
  3. While the meat is searing, toss some peeled and halved shallots with 1 tbsp oil and set to one side.
  4. When the initial searing time is up, remove the beef from the oven. Turn the oven down to 170°C and leave the door open for a few seconds to help it come down to temperature.
  5. Add the shallots to the roasting tray around the beef, and return the tray to the oven for your calculated roasting time.
  6. When the cooking time is over, remove the roasting tray from the oven. Allow the meat to rest in the tray for 10 minutes, then remove the meat from the roasting tray, wrap in foil and allow it to rest for another 20.
  7. While the meat is resting, make the gravy.
Storage Advice

Although we prefer meat wrapped in butcher's paper, we decided to vacuum pack our nationwide deliveries in order to help prolong shelf life and reduce leakages in transit. Refrigerate as soon as your order arrives. Please see the labels for use by dates.
