WATCH: The only roast recipe you need

It’s foolproof, promise. (And fuss-free – just in time for entertaining season.)


When it comes to roast perfection, the only star ingredient you really need is great-quality free-range meat. That means meat that’s free of routine antibiotics and growth promoters and that’s been aged for just the right amount of time to make it tender and full of flavour. Meat like this doesn’t need much in the way of fancy sauces or marinades – go low on fuss and high on flavour with just a handful of fresh rosemary and thyme, red onion, olive oil and seasoning… Because we all need a few stress-savers up our sleeves come this time of year.
