Make slits all over the roast with a small knife. Insert slivers of sliced garlic. Season the roast with salt and pepper, then spread generously with mustard.
Preheat your oven to 240°C/475°F/ gas 9.
Pop your roasting tray in the preheated oven and the heat down to 200°C/400°F/gas 6.
Cook your beef for for 1 hour 15 minutes for well done, Cook for 1 hour for medium beef or 45/50 mins for medium-rare.
Rest your meat for 10 -15 minutes. We cover ours with layer of tinfoil and a tea towel to keep the heat in as we make our gravy!
