Buttery mashed potatoes flecked with herbs are a great side to this tender, juicy beef roast. Use beef rib eye or a sirloin roast.

Preparation Time: Cook Time:

Ingredients / serves 6

  • 1½ kg piece rib eye/scotch fillet
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • carrots and sugar snap peas to serve

  • Champ potato
  • 1 kg Pontiac potatoes, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup cream
  • 40 g butter
  • 4 green shallots, ends trimmed, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped fresh continental parsley


Brush the beef with the combined mustard, oregano, lemon rind and juice, and garlic.
Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Place the beef on a rack in a roasting dish. Roast for 45 minutes for rare, 60 minutes for medium and 75 minutes for well done. For ease and accuracy use a meat thermometer.

To make the Champ potato: cook the potato until tender. Drain well. Return to pan with cream and butter, and use a potato masher to mash until smooth. Add the green shallot and parsley, stir until combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Serve with carrots and sugar snap peas.
