How to Roast Beef

Cowbridge Kitchen

If you have ever visited a Carvery for Sunday lunch then you will know how great a perfectly cooked joint of Beef is, and for me is all about getting that joint of Beef tender and melt in the mouth.

This joint of beef is cooked slow in all of the beef juices so that it is lovely and tender and if you do this in an Air-fryer it is going to be even better.

Roast beef is traditionally served with Yorkshire Puddings and Horseradish.

    1 kg Beef
    Olive oil

    Cooking Instructions

    1. It is important to get the joint to room temperature, you can do this by leaving the joint out for a few hours before cooking. Or you can rest the joint in some warm water for 20 minutes, if you do this you will have to make sure it is fully dry before you seal it.
    2. Get a griddle or frying pan on the stove, add about 50 ml of Olive Oil and season this with Salt. Or you can rub the Salt and dry sage into the beef directly.
    3. When the pan is hot place the beef in the centre and allow to cook (Seal) for a few minutes turning the joint so that it is sealed on all sides. This should take 10 minutes or so.
    4. Heat the oven to 180 c.
    5. Add the carrots and onions to a baking tray.
    6. Rest the Beef in the centre of the baking tray.
    7. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes for each 500 g. So for this 1 kg joint I am going to be cooking it for 1hr.
    8. Add 25 - 30 minutes for each 500gs
    9. When the beef is cooked remove it from the roasting tray , and rest it on a wire rack for up to 1 hr before serving.
