4 people

1 hour 10 minutes


Seasoning 2 tsp coarse salt 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper ½ tsp dried thyme ½ tsp garlic granules ½ tsp dried rosemary ½ tsp mustard powder or brown sugar For the Roast Beef 2 ½ oz (1.2 kg) roasting beef joint check it fits into your Air fryer 3 tbsp olive oil

Step 1

Take your beef joint out of the fridge and pat dry. Leave it to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Make sure to check whether your joint fits into the air fryer. You can always slice a larger joint in half.

Step 2

Preheat the air fryer (400°F /200°C) for 10 minutes. Meanwhile brush the beef all over with olive oil and season with salt and pepper plus a herb seasoning mix.

Step 3

Use a liner in the air fryer basket (optional) and position the beef on top. Roast for 10-15 minutes. Cooking the beef at a high temperature will create a lovely crust on the exterior sealing all the lovely juices within in the same way searing the beef in a skillet before roasting in the oven.

Step 4

Remove the air fryer basket and turn the beef over. Reduce the temperature to 350°F / 180°C and cook for a further 30 minutes.

Step 5

Start checking the internal temperature of the beef with an instant read thermometer inserting the probe in the middle thickest part. Remember that the temperature of the joint will continue to rise slightly as it rests so factor that in.

Step 6

Use the table below as a guide to cook it to your liking, adding five minutes of cooking time until your preferred temperature is reached. Rare or medium rare is preferable for this lovely cut. Rare 120-129°F 49-54°C Medium Rare 130-134°F 55-57°C Medium 135-144°F 58-62°C Medium Well 145-154°F 63-67°C Well Done 155-164°F 68-73°C

Step 7

Once the beef is cooked to your liking place it on a warm platter and cover loosely with foil. Leave it to rest for 20-30 minutes before slicing against the grain and serving with your favorite side dishes.
