Crying rib roast


You'll need

6 parsnips, peeled and halved lengthways 2 bunches of baby turnips, trimmed and peeled 2 bunches of Dutch carrots, trimmed and scrubbed 20 ml (1 tbsp) olive oil 1 (about 2.4kg) dry-aged rib of beef (see note)   Herb butter 125 gm butter, softened 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped 2 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves 1 tbsp each of finely chopped rosemary, sage and thyme leaves

Method

  • 01
  • For herb butter, combine ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place vegetables in a roasting pan, drizzle with oil, season to taste and toss to combine. Place a wire rack over the vegetables and place rib, bone-side down, on top. Season to taste, then spread herb butter over boneless side of rib and roast for 1 hour 36 minutes (see note) for medium-rare. Remove rack and rib from oven and cover with foil.
  • 03
  • Increase oven to 250C. Turn vegetables and roast until golden (about 10 minutes). Serve with rib and pan juices spooned over.
Note Cooking meat on the bone takes about 40 minutes per kilo at 180C for medium-rare. If your beef is larger than 2.4kg, adjust time.
