How to cook rib eye roast

A rib eye roast is also known as a rolled rib beef roast. It is very tender and juicy and the perfect cut of beef to roast with your favourite vegetables for a dinner party or to feed the family.

The cut

A rolled rib eye roast is taken from the rib primal just behind the shoulder blade. It is the same cut of beef as a standing rib roast with the bones removed and rolled and tied.

How to cook

Best cooking methods – Roast

This flavoursome cut performs best when roasted in an oven. Suggested roasting times per 500g for cooking at 200°C are:

  • Rare 15-20 min per 500g
  • Medium 20-25 min per 500g
  • Well done 25-30 min per 500g.

Preheat oven to 350°C. Drizzle a little vegetable oil over the roast and coat with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet to medium-high, and add the remaining oil to the skillet. Brown the roast on all sides by sauteeing it for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Place roast on a rack on top of a baking sheet. Bake approximately for 20 minutes for each 500g of meat. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.

Lamb fillet has little connective tissue and does very little work, resulting in an extremely tender cut. Best served pink to preserve its succulent flavour, lamb fillet is versatile.
