Served with salads and a fresh chimichurri, this will be a real crowd pleaser with enough leftovers for roast beef sandwiches the next day! This family-favourite is a real show-stopper that is perfectly suited to special occasions like Christmas.

Heat the charcoal BBQ to a medium heat. Tip: you can use any BBQ that has a lid if you don’t have a charcoal BBQ, however the charcoal adds a delicious smoky flavour to the beef if you do use one.

3

Rub the beef with olive oil, salt and pepper and place on the BBQ grill and put the lid down and cook for 30-40 minutes or until the internal temp is round 52° to 55°. Turn the meat over half way through the cooking time.
