  • 1 x 1.25kg lean boneless sirloin or topside joint
  • 3 red onions, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 12 fat garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 6 tablespoons good quality beer
  • 3 tablespoons rowanberry, quince or redcurrant jelly
  • 225g plain flour, sieved
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons English mustard powder
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2-3 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves or1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 300-400ml milk
  • Sunflower oil, for cooking


  1. Preheat the oven to 180-190°C, 160-170°C Fan, Gas Mark 4-5.
  2. Place the sirloin joint on a metal rack in a large non-stick roasting tin. Season and open roast for the preferred calculated cooking time. From time to time during cooking continue to baste the joint with the beef juices from the roasting tin.
  3. Prepare the herby Yorkshire puddings; place the flour, salt and mustard powder in a large bowl. Whisk in the beaten egg, thyme and enough milk to produce a smooth thick batter, about the consistency of double cream. Leave the batter to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  4. 30-40 minutes before the end of cooking remover the joint and rack from the tin, add the red onions and garlic to the base of the tin then position the beef on top of the vegetables.
