Traditional Roast Beef


With Christmas just around the corner, ‘tis the season for residents to enjoy our Traditional Roast Beef. Remember to take your meat out of the fridge ahead of time, as cooking from room temperature allows a more consistent cook.

If time permits, we suggest rubbing your meat all over with a little oil and searing the outside in a hot pan before roasting. This seals in the juices and keeps your roast moist.


Dijon mustard and horseradish cream make the perfect accompaniment to the succulent, caramelised meat and vegetables in this recipe.
