A rolled sirloin, from the Meat Service Counter, is an excellent choice for a special occasion or a hearty family meal, as it is simple to cook and easy to carve. Serve with creamy mashed potato flavoured with horseradish, and broccoli or buttered cabbage.
Leave the meat to rest for at least 10 minutes after roasting; this makes it moist and easy to carve. The shallots are roasted in their skins, to cut down on the preparation. However, you can peel them first, if you prefer, and roast in the same way.
Note: Wash hands, equipment and work surfaces thoroughly after handling raw meat
