Roast beef is one of my favorite things to cook for celebrations – but I also enjoy it at the weekend too. It helps that roast beef is my absolute favorite meat to eat cold – so I always buy a larger cut than is necessary – which means lots of leftovers! I've used a Prime beef roast here, but any decent cut of beef would work well – especially a tenderloin! The beef is crusted with a mixture of herbs and Dijon mustard, and adds a wonderful flavor to the meat.
How to Make Herb Crusted Roast Beef
To prepare the coating for the beef, mix together Dijon mustard, olive oil, and finely chopped fresh herbs. I use whatever I have to hand or whatever is overflowing in my herb garden!
Featured in these photos is a combination of garlic chives, flat-leaf parsley, and thyme. Spread the mixture over the beef, then season with salt and pepper.
Roast in a preheated oven until it has reached the required level of doneness – this cut was 1lb 6oz, and took about 30-35 minutes at 350F to get an internal temperature of 145F (medium rare). And yes, I *do* like my beef rare!!! A reliable probe thermometer is absolutely essential for cooking roast beef in my kitchen.
Let the meat rest for 10 minutes, then carve and serve.
