of the reference intake
Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Rub the beef with the mustard and horseradish; season generously. Heat the oil in a large frying pan until nearly smoking, then add the beef joint and sear for 1 min each side. Transfer the joint to a roasting tin and roast for 25-45 mins, depending how well done you prefer it cooked. Cover loosely with foil.
Meanwhile, put the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water, bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins until tender. Season and add the milk, butter and horseradish, then mash until very smooth.
For the gravy, pour any beef juices into a saucepan and stir in the flour and redcurrant jelly. Cook over a medium heat for 1 min, then add the wine. Turn up the heat, whisking all the time. After 2 mins, stir in the stock. Simmer for 5-10 mins, stirring regularly; season to taste.
Meanwhile, put the Yorkshire puddings on a tray and cook to pack instructions. Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the vegetables for 3-4 mins until al dente.
Carve the beef into slices and serve with the mash, Yorkshires, vegetables and gravy for a simple and delicious roast for two.
