A delicious beef recipe for the whole family

LET’S START …

N°1

Remove the beef from the fridge 1 hour before cooking and let it come to room temperature.

N°2

Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius (fan forced).

N°3

Place prepared vegetables into roasting pan and place roast on top. Sprinkle over salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil.

N°4

Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes for medium roast (65 degrees in the middle with a meat thermometer). Rest on a board uncovered for at least 20 minutes before carving. While the roast is resting, make your gravy.

N°5

Remove roast veg from roasting tray and place on serving platter. Combine corn starch and 250mL water in a separate bowl to form a slurry. Whisk slurry into pan juices in roasting tray until combined. Make sure to deglaze the roasting pan well with the slurry- there is a lot of flavour in the tray.

N°6

Transfer pan juice/corn flour mixture into a small pot over a medium heat. Add remaining water while whisking to thicken. Once all water is added, simmer until desired thickened. Add more corn starch slurry to thicken if needed. Season with salt and pepper.

N°7

Carve leg and serve with roasted veg and pan juice gravy.
