How to prepare
Preheat the oven to 220˚C/Gas 7. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a flame and ovenproof pan. Season and brown the meat on all sides. Roast for 15 mins. Lower the heat to 170˚C/Gas 3. For an 800g joint, roast for about 20 mins for rare to medium-rare. Cover with foil and rest it for 15 mins before carving.
Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. If you’re not going to eat it within a day or two, freeze your meat as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen, use within a month. Use on the day of defrosting.
