Roasted Rib of Beef (serves 6- 8 people)
With this recipe you don’t need to seal the beef before in a pan as the hot oven will do this for you. The most important tips are to bring the beef to room temperature before cooking and once cooked to allow the beef to rest for 20 minutes to 1 hour before carving so keep in a warm place. The fat can be used for Yorkshire puddings or roast potatoes and the meat juices made into gravy.

1 tbs flour
Salt and black pepper
