Roasted beef with mustard & salsa verde


  • Preheat oven to highest degree.
  • Cook the potatoes in plenty of lightly salted boiling water until reasonably tender. Then drain well and place in a large heavy-bottomed oven tray. Sprinkle with a little oil, season and cook in the oven until golden brown all over.
  • At the same time, place the beef in another large oven tray, lightly season and smear all over with grain mustard. Then cook in the oven to the desired degree. When ready, remove and allow to rest for about 10 mins, before slicing into 4.
  • To make the salsa verde, process the parsley, mint, basil and garlic with the Dijon mustard, anchovies, capers, ¾ cup oil, vinegar and seasonings. Taste for seasoning.
  • Serve the sliced beef on individual plates with a good dollop of the salsa verde and potatoes alongside.
