For the beef:

For the red wine jus:

Tender beef coated in a fresh herb crust to seal in the flavour. Served with a rich red wine jus.
  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7 and place the beef in a roasting tin, fat-side up.
  2. Whizz together the remaining ingredients in a food processor (or crush together very thoroughly in a pestle and mortar) until everything is well combined. Spread all over the beef until covered.
  3. Roast for 25 minutes, then lower the heat to 180°C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Roast for 90 minutes longer for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking.
  4. Transfer the beef to a board, tent loosely with tin foil and allow to rest for 20 minutes before carving and serving.
  5. While the beef is resting, place the roasting tin with its drippings on top of the hob over two burners set on a high heat. Skim off any excess fat with a spoon.
  6. Add the wine to the drippings in the tin and bubble for 3-4 minutes until reduced, scraping any sticky bits from the bottom of the tin with a wooden spoon. Add the stock and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Add the cornflour paste and whisk thoroughly into the sauce.
  8. Whisk in the thyme and any juices released from the resting beef. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Carve the roast beef and serve with the jus.

Note: Rump of beef can be used as an alternative to Glenmór sirloin, if you wish.
