Recipes Roast Roast Beef


Prep 10 minutes • Cook 26 minutes + resting time • Serves 12        


1.25 kg New Zealand Springvale Grass Fed Beef Inside Round Roast
½ small bunch fresh rosemary 
¼ cup light olive oil 
2 large garlic cloves, crushed 
salt & freshly ground black pepper 
2 teaspoons light olive oil, extra


Preheat oven to 390°F. Tie the beef at regular intervals with unwaxed white kitchen string to secure.  Reserve 3 whole sprigs of rosemary. Coarsely chop 1 tablespoon of the remaining rosemary. Combine the chopped rosemary, oil and garlic in a small bowl. Rub the rosemary mixture over the beef. Thread the reserved rosemary sprigs under the string on the beef.  Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the extra oil in a roasting pan over high heat. Add the beef and cook, turning occasionally, for 6 minutes or until brown all over. Roast in the oven, basting regularly with pan juices, for 15-20 minutes for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking.

Remove beef from baking pan and transfer to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside for 10-15 minutes to rest. Remove string and rosemary sprigs from the beef. Carve the beef across the grain into thick slices. Place on a serving platter and serve immediately with horseradish or your preferred gravy or sauce, and your favourite sides.
