Roast Beef With Roast Potatoes

Isabella's picture
Ingredients
  Beef 3 1⁄2 Pound
  Salt To Taste
  Black pepper To Taste
  Dripping/Butter 2 Ounce
  Potatoes 1 1⁄2 Pound
Directions

Heat the oven to 425°F (Gas Mark 7, 220°C).
Wipe the joint dry and season with salt and pepper.
Heat the dripping or butter in a roasting tin and brown the joint well all over, over high heat.
Set aside.
Peel the potatoes and cut into even sized pieces.
Drain thoroughly on kitchen paper, then turn the potatoes into the hot fat.
Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Stand a rack over the potatoes and place the joint on it.
Roast for 15 minutes then reduce the heat to 325°F (Gas Mark 3, 170°C).
Calculate the roasting time at 15 minutes per pound for rare meat, 25 minutes for medium and 35 minutes for well done, and roast according to taste.
Baste once or twice during the roasting, so that the potatoes absorb some of the juices.
When the meat is cooked to your liking remove the roasting tin from the oven and transfer the joint to a heated serving dish.
Keep warm.
Turn the oven up again to 425 °F (Gas Mark 7, 220 °C) and return the tin of potatoes to the oven to crisp.
If you are baking a Yorkshire pudding, put it in at this point, near the top of the oven.
