Recipe - Serves: 8


2 red onions
1.2kg Waitrose Beef Topside
3 sprigs fresh thyme
500g parsnips, peeled and cut into wedges
2 tbsp Waitrose Leckford Estate Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil
1 tbsp Duchy Originals From Waitrose Organic Wholegrain Mustard with Honey


1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Cut the onions into chunks and arrange in a roasting tin. Set the beef joint on top, season and scatter with the thyme. Place in the oven for 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, parboil the parsnips for 5 minutes until partly softened. Drain well. Mix together the oil and mustard and toss with the parsnips. Arrange round the beef and return to the oven for 30-45 minutes, depending on how you like your beef. Turn the parsnips halfway through cooking.

3. Remove the beef from the oven and leave to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes. Slice and serve with the parsnips.
