How to make pepper crusted roast beef

  • Preheat the oven to 230°C (210° fan) | gas 8.
  • Line a roasting tray with a trivet large enough to hold the beef.
  • Pat the beef dry before rubbing with the sunflower oil.
  • Press the pepper into the top of the roast, covering it evenly.
  • Season with plenty of salt.
  • Place the roast on the trivet and roast for 20 minutes before reducing the oven to 170°C (150° fan) | gas 3 and roasting for about another 1 hour until the meat registers at least 60°C | 140F on a meat thermometer.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to rest, covered loosely with aluminium foil.
  • Serve the pepper crusted roast beef with a side of mashed potatoes or grilled carrots.
