The most important thing to remember when preparing this luxurious beef roast is to let it rest for a full 15 minutes before carving. Resting allows the meat juices to redistribute themselves in the roast, ensuring that the slices of beef are juicy and delicious.

THIS IS  NOT Yorkshire Pud. I was raised on it. There is no beef, or indeed, any kind of broth in the recipe. Stay away  from this one. It is not authentic.
