20m at 220C then 35m at 180C. I always get nervous over beef cooking times.

I prefer mine low and slow cooked in red wine , onion on the top , bit of rosemary


I do like a pot roast, as it goes, but topside does better “normal” roast. I do have a big thing of brisket I’m going to pot roast next week though :thup:

I just throw the lot in one of those oven bag things, roast beef comes out on a low and slow falling apart but still has all the moisture as its been sealed in all the wine and juices

contents of the bag make a cracking jus too

Was a boneless leg from Waitrose that my mum bought in January but wasn’t well enough to cook, so went in the freezer. Once I’d shoved a bulb of garlic and a pile of rosemary in it and a good amount of seasoning, I was very pleased with the result. I’d guess that it was British lamb - it’s the New Zealand stuff that tends to disappoint.

I’d still rather get hogget, though.

Oven roasted sweet potatoes covered in ground Chill and smoked paprika rub, plus Quinoa cooked with Garlic,chives and dill, a huge "hot Salad" with roasted beets, brown rice, asparagus, toms, cue, carrots and olives with a drizzle of dairy free light mayo and olive oil.

All washed down with a few bottles of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand and France.

All food cooked by my lovely sister's hand as a reward because I spend the evening round there editing and adding the finishing touches to her essay that had a midnight deadline.

The food was bloody fantastic, that girl can really cook.

Shepherd's pie awaiting. Which is good, because I'm hungrier than a Scouser that's just found a dead rat in his bin.

The missus is going to make a beef madras tomorrow with the approx 1kg remaining roast beef leftover from Sunday.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much for something she's not attempted before, but the last time she tried an off the cuff curry with left overs it was a Biryani with left over lamb which was sensational, so she better pull it out of the bloody bag this time too.
