You'll need...


  • Mustard
  • Beef joint
  • Method:

    2. Rub mustard into the joint. 

    3. Line your roasting tin with your non-stick liner and put the meat in. 

    Aga Range Cooker Tips:

    • For Fast Roasting - Hang the tin from the third set of runners in the roasting oven and cook. 12 minutes per lb of beef.
    • For Medium Roasting - Put the meat into the roasting oven for one third of the cooking time, to allow the joint to seal and brown. 
      - Move the joint to the simmering oven, for the entire minutes per pound cooking time. 12 minutes per lb of beef.
      - When cooked, remove the meat and allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes to allow the juices to settle, whilst you make your gravy.
