right Today , we're gonna cook a roast beef joint in the halogen oven , and I'm looking forward to that .
Now , if you want vegetables to accompany it , I've got my potatoes already there to boil par oil .
And I've got my veg all in the steamer , and I've popped my beef onto the scales because I need to know how much it weighs before I start cooking , right .
I'm gonna use a cold halogen oven to put it in 210 degrees Celsius .
You're gonna pop that on .
You're gonna put your beef in there and cook for 20 minutes doing that .
The temperature of the oven is heating at the same time is the temperature of the beef and it tenderises it slightly .
So that's why I cook it from cold .
Then you add 20 minutes per per per pound of cooking time or 445 grammes .
You can see I'm struggling with the pounds and kilogrammes .
All right , so it's 20 minutes per pound or if you want it in kilogrammes , it's almost half a kilogramme , right ?
You wanna season your beef a little bit to give you flavour , but don't use salt because that means that the juices run away and it won't be as tender and moist .
So just season it .
I've got a little bit of black pepper here , all the way round , all right ?
And I'm also gonna use my famous seasonal because I just love that .
And I'm gonna cook my roast potatoes with mine so you'll see at what point I put them in .
If you don't want to cook your roast potatoes , you just want to cook your joint and then pop it onto a into a roasting tray and then put it on a rack , just a single wrap on the bottom .
I'm gonna cook the roast potatoes with mine , so I'm gonna put mine straight into the cold halogen oven .
So there's your seasoned beef going in .
I use a little bit of lard or tricks , and I just pop it on the top of it .
Don't need any racks or anything .
I'm just gonna sit there .
Don't worry about all of that .
That will just all go and melt off .
Pop that into the cold Hagen oven 210 degrees , and you're gonna cook that for 20 minutes and then I'm gonna cook it a further 20 minutes per pound , so I need to cook it for a further 40 minutes .
But after the 1st 20 minutes , you reduce your heat down to 100 and 80 .
So the 1st 20 minutes cooked from cold at 210 then cooked each pound a further 20 minutes .
So in my case , because it was £2 it needs a further 40 minutes on the reduced heat .
So let's start off .
It's a 210 and that's going to be for 20 minutes , right ?
I'm not turning the beef yet .
It will be turned halfway through the cooking time , and you need to determine that from the weight of your beef .
For me , it's in another 20 minutes because my beef was £2 as you saw .
So therefore , I'm gonna give it a further 20 minutes , reduce the heat to 100 and 80 that is now going to cook , and at this point I'm gonna pop my potatoes on , ready to boil them to put in .
You can see all the juice is running away .
Some people like use those for gravy .
That's perfectly all right .
If you do .
You probably want to put as much , uh or fat on as I have , but then you might want to cook it in a roasting tin .
Do cook it in a roasting tin .
Use the lower rack so the heat can generate and come up underneath .
Right , That's had 20 minutes now .
So now I'm going to turn it over so we do the other side and cook for 20 more minutes , and then you add the final 20 minutes cooking time on at the end .
We put a little bit more oil in because I've got my potatoes here that are car boiled , ready to go in .
They've been boiled , distress them a little bit and then pop them in , cover them with oil and start cooking again So you can see I've got the potatoes in .
And what I do is I make sure they're all covered in the oil and look at these juices that are coming out of the beef .
Turn them over and then that is all going to your potato .
That's why I like to cook them this way so they all need to be covered now with oil , and then I can continue cooking .
So that's now The cooking time is recommended at 20 minutes a pound and you see those potatoes are coming on beautifully .
I'm now just going to base everything .
Get all those fats over everything all over this and then give it its last 20 minutes of cooking time .
And then when I turn this back on because we rest our beef for 20 minutes , then when I turn this back on , if I turn my steam on for 40 minutes , it should all be cooked at the same time .
So there's our beef cooked there slightly , probably slightly darker there than I'd like , but no worries .
We can cut that little piece off .
We could have covered it with some parchment paper , but I didn't .
I wanted the potatoes to get crispy , and I thought it would get in the way .
So that's just one thing you need to watch out for .
OK , if you wanna check if it's cooked or how you like it cooked , then obviously you know that that's what you're gonna You're gonna be popping one of those in .
But , uh , it's not much to worry about .
That's exactly how I like it .
So now that's gonna go onto a into A onto a plate in some foil to rest for 20 minutes , Right ?
Our beef resting for 20 minutes .
Here , our Pota is looking absolutely gorgeous .
I'm now gonna turn them over , gonna turn it back up to 200 degrees , and we've got 20 minutes on the steamer , so everything should be ready around about the same time .
And we can get the beef sliced , ready to go on the plate towards the end of this cooking time .
We have five minutes to go .
The meat is rested .
The Yorkshire puddings cheats .
Ones frozen are ready to go in .
And over here , we have the beef being cut , right While the gravy is making two minutes before the end of cooking time .
Pop your frozen Yorkshires in and they're all cook .
Ready to go .
How about that , right ?
