Topside is a classic roasting joint and king of the Sunday lunch table.
Our Beef Topside sums up why a proper Sunday roast is so legendary, with the perfect marriage of fine-grained texture and flavour released in every bite.
Before cooking, remove the packaging and allow the joint to dry out and reach room temperature.
Preheat a fan assisted oven to 180C.
Generously season the meat using good quality sea salt and cracked black pepper, then place into a good-sized roasting tin, on a trivet of carrots, celery and onions.
Place into the preheated oven and roast for 20 minutes per 500g.
Remove from the oven and leave to rest uncovered for 20 minutes before carving.
