Story Behind this Recipe
I used to use various herbs and spices to make roast beef, but simple is really the best. Our family recipe for roast beef just uses salt and coarsely ground black pepper to flavor the meat.
If you cut the meat when it's still hot out of the oven, the juices will just flow out, so leave it to rest for a while wrapped in aluminium foil. The juices will be settle throughout the meat. Please adjust the amount of salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste. It tastes better with a generous amount of both.
