Standing Beef Rib Roast with Smoked Cheddar & Chive Mash

( rating - rate this recipe)
This is a special cut of beef to roast – it’s essentially a piece of scotch fillet with the bone left in, and the texture and flavour is simply unbeatable. If you can’t find it in-store, ask your butcher. Because it’s so visually impressive with those great bones, it’s a knockout dish to serve when you’re entertaining – and easy to prepare as well.

  • 2kg Quality Mark whole beef rib eye, bone-in


  • 4 shallots, peeled and sliced into rings
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour
  • ¾ cup oil


  • 1.5kg Agria potatoes, peeled and chopped evenly\
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup smoked Cheddar, grated (or use plain Cheddar)
  • ½ cup chives, finely chopped

Pan jus

  • 2 cups red wine
  • 1 cup Campbell’s Real Stock – No Added Salt Beef
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

To serve

  • Cooked seasonal vegetables


Preheat the oven to 220ºC.


Pat the beef dry with a paper towel, coat with a little oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat and when the pan is very hot, sear the meat until browned all over. Transfer to a roasting dish (bone side down) and roast in the oven for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 160°C and continue to cook for 20 minutes per 500g for medium (or 15 minutes per 500g for rare). Remove from the oven, cover loosely with foil and rest for 20-30 minutes before carving across the grain.


Shake the shallots with the cornflour in a small bag to coat. Heat the oil in a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the shallots and cook for 5-10 minutes until they are golden brown and crispy, stirring occasionally. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.


While the meat is cooking, place the potatoes in a pot of cold salted water. Bring to the boil, then immediately reduce to a gentle simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender. Drain, then place back over a low heat for a minute or so to dry out any remaining moisture. Mash the potatoes or pass through a potato ricer or sieve. Stir in the butter and cheese using a wooden spoon then add chives. Season if required.

Pan jus

To make the jus, discard any excess fat from the roasting dish, place the dish on the stovetop over a medium-high heat, add the red wine and bring to the boil for 30 seconds. Reduce the heat and simmer until reduced by two thirds, scraping the bottom to add flavour. Add the stock and simmer for another few minutes. Whisk through the butter and sugar and pour into a jug.

To serve

Spoon mounds of potato onto serving plates. Slice the rested meat and place a slice or two on top of the potato. Drizzle the beef with jus, sprinkle with shallots and serve with a side of seasonal vegetables or a salad.

Did you know lean beef and lamb contribute a small amount of heart healthy omega 3 to the diet?
  • Take the beef out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking for an even cooking result.
  • After cooking, allow meat to rest for approximately 5 minutes per 500g and for optimal tenderness, carve across the grain.
  • Browning the beef first is important for flavour, colour and texture.
  • As a general rule, one rib will serve one very hungry person or two average serves.
  • If there’s any leftover, sliced roast beef with salad makes a tasty, nutritious sandwich the next day.
  • Keep an eye on the shallots as they cook – they go from perfect to burnt very quickly.
  • Watch your portion sizes - the Heart Foundation recommend a serving of 100-185g of lean meat can be eaten on most days.  This equates roughly to the size of your palm or a deck of cards.
