For roasting the beef

  • 10 lbs rib sirloin beef
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 oz beef drippings
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Mustard powder

For Yorkshire puddings

  • 1 cup of beaten white egg
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Kosher last
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas7.

  2. Use a shallow baking tin and place the joint of beef into it. Now sprinkle the English mustard powder, kosher salt and black pepper on beef. Use melted beef drippings to pour all over the beef.

  3. Roast it for next 35 minutes and then turn the flame to 180C/375F/Gas 5 for another 1 and 1/2 hours of cooking.

  4. Shift it to a place with normal temperature and sit the meat to rest for next 30 minutes.

  5. Now shift it again and check the heat to 240C/475F/Gas 9. Now pour the remainder of remaining beef dripping into a baking tray. (you can use baking tray that is use to bake small cake/muffins, etc,) fill the each tray with little drippings and transfer it to oven for 3 minutes or until you see the smoke coming out of it.

  6. Remove it from oven now and add 2 tablespoon of Yorkshire puddings batter into each rack and bake it for another 15 minutes or until it changes the color to golden brown. You can check in between but not before first 10 minutes of baking.

  7. Take hot plates and carve and portion the meat onto it. Check the juice left in roasting and use it as gravy. When you will be done with the Yorkshire puddings you can use mustard powder, roasted potatoes, a few vegetable of your choice and horseradish to serve.

Making Yorkshire puddings:

  1. Use a large bowl and add plain flour. Now place the white beaten eggs in the centre of plain flour.

  2. Use a jug and mix water and milk together. Now pour it in the centre of flour and egg. Use a whisk and beat it gently to make a fine batter.

  3. Add salt and beat it with the mixture so it mixes well. If the air goes in the puddings will me lighter. When everything mixes well to form a tender and soft batter covered with clothes leave it to stand for 40 minutes or around.

Recipe Notes

To pick the right joint of the beef, always prefer bigger joint beefs because it is more of taste than smaller ones. Always make sure to cook on the bone. The beef must be covered with fat and it should be dark red in color. Throughout meat on the beef defines this is the right pick for roast beef dish.

Use of English mustard powder is optional in this recipe. It is all up to you. I have used English mustard powder with this dish just because it adds terrible taste and crust to the meat.
