Jamie Oliver's roast beef

Recommended Posts

How do you cook those beef roasts diabolic? I would like to know

Usually just use the Jamie Oliver method lol. It's pretty easy.


1.5kg topside or other roast

Roughly chopped carrots, celery, onions and garlic

Olive oil, salt & pepper, rosemary

Potatoes/pumpkin/kumara cut in half


1) Take meat out of fridge 30 mins before cooking

2) Roughly chop carrots/celery/onions, dont peel (except onions), dont peel garlic just crush, and dump in roasting tray

3) Put roast on top of carrots/celery/onions, drizzle with oil and season. Surround with potatoes/kumara too if you want to do them

4) Heat oven to as hot as it goes (usually about 240)

5) Put roasting tray in and immediately turn oven down to 200. 

6) Cook for an hour then take meat out and rest for 20-30 min

7) Drain most of the oil out of the pan and mash up the chopped carrots/celery/onions. Add beef stock/wine and heat tray over element while stirring to reduce to gravy. Stir in a bit of flour of you like it thicker
