Method

This recipe will serve 6 - 8 people

  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/gas mark 4.
  2. Using a pestle and mortar, crush the garlic, herbs, salt, peppercorns, mustard seeds and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil together. Rub the beef with the mixture and set aside for 30 minutes to marinate. Drizzle the remaining tablespoon of olive oil into a pan set over a medium-high heat, then seal the beef all over, cooking for 1 or 2 minutes per side.
  3. Place the carrots on the base of a roasting tin and add the beef on top. Place in the oven and cook for 65 minutes (or 20 minutes for 450g), then remove from the oven, cover with a foil tent to keep warm and allow to rest for 20 minutes before carving.
  4. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, until cooked through. Drain and return to the saucepan, then mash with the butter and cream until smooth and season with salt and pepper. 
  5. To prepare the courgettes, melt the butter in a pan set over a medium heat along with the oil. Add the courgettes and garlic and sauté the slices for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Season lightly and add the lemon zest and juice.
  6. Serve the slices of beef on a bed of creamy mash with some garlic courgettes on the side.
