  • 1.5 kg Quality Mark bolar roast
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 2-3 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 1-2 tablespoons gravy powder


Preheat the oven to 140ºC.

Brown the bolar well in a dash of oil over a high heat. Transfer to a deep, stovetop-proof casserole dish. Season with ground black pepper.

Mix together the mustard and garlic, spread over the top of the bolar. Pour in the stock and cover.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1½ hours. Remove the meat from the dish and set aside, covered with foil, to rest for 15 minutes before carving.

Mix the gravy powder with a dash of water, stir into the cooking juices and simmer over a low heat for 2-3 minutes.

Carve the beef into thin slices and serve with the gravy, Yorkshire puddings and your favourite vegetables.

For the Yorkshire Puddings

Sift 1¼ cups of flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Beat 2 eggs and 1¼ cups of milk together and whisk into the flour to make a smooth batter. Add ½ tsp oil to each of 12 muffin tins and heat for 3-4 minutes in a 220ºC oven. When fuming hot, divide the batter evenly among the tins. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until well-risen and golden.

Hi Judy,
Topside should substitute nicely. Use a meat thermometer to make sure you get the degree of cooking just right for your liking. Check out the temperatures on this page : https://secure.zeald.com/beeflamb/COOKING%20METHODS/roast?mv_pc=5583

Not boar, grr to auto spell, it is meant to be bolar.

I couldn't get boar, I have to use topside instead, do I need to cook it longer? It is same weight, 1.5kg

I am just about to make this again - it was amazing. Everyone loved it and the leftover meat (it was quite a big bolar roast) made for great sandwiches the next day! Brilliant recipe and so easy!

Hi Carina. You pour the beef stock over the meat before covering and putting in the oven
