How Do You Cook a Beef Roasting Joint?

Let your beef roasting joint reach room temperature, then season well with salt and pepper. Add your joint to a large frying pan and seal your beef well on all sides. Place your beef roasting joint in the oven at 180°C for about 25 minutes and turn to give it another 25 minutes. Your beef is cooked through when it reaches an internal temperature of 40°.

How Long Does a Roast Beef Joint Take To Cook?

This will depend on the size of your joint. Cook the beef by its weight in an oven at 180°C for: 

Medium rare – 20 minutes per 500g

Medium – 25 minutes per 500g

Well done – 30 minutes per 500g

What is the Best Beef Joint For Roasting?

If you are roasting a joint for a classic Sunday dinner, try the Hereford Beef Ribeye. This classic British beef cut offers the perfect fat-to-meat ratio, resulting in juicy and tender beef every time. If you want a joint to impress friends and family, take a look at our Gold Grade American Wagyu Sirloin, produced by award-winning Snake River Farms.

Should You Marinate Your Beef Roasting Joint?

A high-quality beef joint won’t need a marinade. Our range of roasting joints offers a variety of different flavours, which come through beautifully when cooking. Simply season well with salt and pepper before beginning the cooking process. If you want to add extra flavours, try adding garlic and butter, along with your favourite fresh herbs.

Should You Cover a Beef Joint When Roasting?

No, you shouldn’t. Covering your beef joint in foil whilst roasting will prevent the beef from browning, which means you’ll miss out on an abundance of delicious flavours. You can, however, cover your beef with foil if it is getting too brown before it has reached the right internal temperature or desired doneness, to stop any more colour from developing.

Is Topside or Silverside Better For Roasting?

Both work well as roasting joints, offering delicious beefy flavours. Silverside cuts tend to be slightly leaner, which yield better results from slow roasting. Both should be roasted until slightly pink in the centre. 

What Should You Serve With Roast Beef Joints?

If you’re serving your beef joint as part of a Sunday roast dinner, pair with hearty roasted vegetables, such as celeriac, carrots, and parsnips. Don’t forget your crispy roast potatoes, stuffing, and meaty gravy made from the leftover juices.

Do You Put Water in the Pan When Cooking Roast Beef?

No, we wouldn’t recommend it. With the short cooking times (i.e. less than one hour), the water won’t evaporate in time, leading to soggy beef where the joint has sat in the bottom of the pan.
