Classic Roast Beef with Gravy Image by: Stacey Brandford
Family-favourite roast beef is a Sunday-dinner staple. Add this recipe to your repertoire, and you’ll find yourself coming back to it time and time again.
Rub beef all over with oil, garlic, thyme, salt and half of the pepper. Place on greased rack in roasting pan. Roast in 450°F oven until beginning to brown, about 19 minutes. Reduce heat to 275°F and roast, basting occasionally, until instant-read thermometer inserted in centre reads 140°F for medium-rare, about 1 hour. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil. Let rest for 15 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain.
While roast is resting, drain all but 2 tbsp fat from pan. Sprinkle in flour; cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in wine, scraping up browned bits with wooden spoon. Whisk in broth and remaining pepper; bring to boil over medium heat. Cook, whisking occasionally, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Strain through fine-mesh sieve; stir in parsley, mustard and any accumulated juices from cutting board. Serve with beef.
