Beef Mini Roast Recipe with Mustard

Give your roast beef an added bit with this additional mustard glaze to change up your Sunday roast!

Serves: 2-3

Preparation time:  5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 40-50 minutes (for medium)


  • 1 x 400-450g/14oz-1lb lean beef mini roast (we used a mini topside joint)
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • 30ml/2tbsp Dijon mustard or similar
  • 10ml/2tsp garlic purée
  • 15ml/1tbsp rapeseed or olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the mustard, garlic purée and oil.  
  3. Place the joint on a chopping board, make several slashes over the surface, season and spread with the mustard mixture.  Transfer to a roasting rack in a medium non-stick roasting tin and roast for 40-50 minutes (for medium). Cover with foil if browning too quickly.
  4. Remove the joint from the oven, transfer to a warm plate, cover and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes, 20 if time allows.  
  5. Slice the roast and serve with gravy, mini sauté potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
