Roast sirloin of beef

Ingredients

Preparation method

1. Preheat oven to 220C or 200C fan. Mix seasonings together and rub over surface of beef with olive oil. Place on a roasting rack in a heavy flameproof baking dish.

2. Roast for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 200C or 180C fan. Cook for another 45 minutes for rare. Cook for an extra 15 minutes for medium-rare.

3. Transfer beef to a warm plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 15-20 minutes in a warm place before carving. Serve with Aromatic Steamed Vegetables, Creamed Horseradish Sauce and gravy, if you like.


Tip: To make gravy, pour off all but 2 tablespoons of fat from baking dish. Deglaze the pan on medium heat, scraping off any brown bits, with 1/2 cup white wine and 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar.

Add 2 cups beef stock and any juices from the meat, and cook for a few minutes. Season to taste. Strain into a small saucepan and, just before serving, swirl in 2 teaspoons butter to soften and thicken the gravy. Pour into a gravy boat to serve.
