Cover with cling film and leave to rest for 30 minutes, so the meat absorbs all the flavours before cooking.

Chef's top tips
This recipe will take the core temperature of the beef to 55 degrees, for medium cooking.
If you prefer your meat rare, I advise removing it from the oven after 37 minutes.
When you take it out of the oven, remove it from the roasting tray straight away and let it release its juices.
If you like the flavour of cooking juices, mix the juice with a little oil and use it as a dressing.
For the ultimate roast beef, before cooking in the oven brown the joint quickly in a non-stick pan, which will seal in all the flavour for superb results.
