Tasty Roasted Scotch Galloway Beef with Beef Dripping

Roasted Scotch Galloway Beef with Beef Dripping

Ingredients Instructions
  • 1.5 kg Scotch Galloway Beef Rump Joint
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp Scottish rapeseed oil 
  • 2 red onion, quartered
  • 1 bulb of garlic, cut in half
  • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Beef dripping: 2 tbsp flour
  • 500ml red wine
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 2 tsp cranberry jelly or jam, fresh cranberries would also work
  • 1 tsp soy sauce 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
  • Smash up the garlic and finely chop the thyme. Brush the whole beef joint with mustard and a splash of olive oil, then cover with the garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Crank the heat of your pan to about medium/high. Gently pop the beef into a hot roasting tray or pan sear on all sides until golden brown. 
  • In the same pan, whack in the quartered onions, rosemary and garlic. Then it’s time to roast - allow your joint to roast for 12-15 minutes per 500g, depending on your desired cooking temperature.
  • Remove the beef from the oven then transfer the roast to a plate or tray and cover with tin foil and allow it to rest.
  • Place the roasting pan with all the lovely juices and scraps on a medium heat and carefully whisk the flour into the beef juices. Cook for 30 seconds, then pour in the wine and beef stock. Allow this delicious gravy to gently simmer a little, and allow the flour to cook out.
  • Stir in the cranberry and soy sauce then bring to a simmer for around 10 mins, but make sure you are stirring it regularly, (we don’t want everyone bringing up your burnt gravy every Christmas from now on) until the gravy has thickened nicely and is rich and shiny.
  • Strain all the bits and bobs out of the gravy, the onions, thyme garlic etc… make sure it’s piping hot.
