Pan sauce

  • 250ml of chicken stock
  • 1 dash of red wine
  • 1 tbsp of flour


Mix together the black garlic paste, chipotle, paprika, orange zest and thyme leaves, then slather liberally over the beef with plenty of salt and pepper and leave to marinate in the fridge overnight
Remove the beef from the fridge an hour before cooking to reach room temperature
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7
Toss the carrots in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
Place the beef in an oven tray with the carrots arranged around the sides. The carrots will roast in the beef drippings, making them extra delicious
Place the tray in the oven. After 20 minutes of roasting at 220°C, turn the oven down to 160°C and roast for a further 30 (rare) to 40 minutes (medium-rare)
Remove from the oven, lift the beef onto a plate and cover with foil. Leave to rest for 20 minutes
In the meantime, make a quick pan sauce. Strain the juices from the tray into a pan and add the wine and chicken stock. Bring to the boil and reduce for a few minutes
Whisk in a spoonful of flour to thicken and simmer to cook out the floury taste. Taste and season with salt and pepper
Carve the beef against the grain and serve up with roast carrots and gravy
