Spring Herbed Standing Roast with Red Wine Jus

Serves 6

¼ cup olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
100g pancetta, finely chopped
½ cup tarragon leaves, chopped
½ cup parsley leaves, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 thick slice sourdough, torn in 2cm pieces
2½kg standing rib roast
1kg beetroot, washed 
and trimmed
100g baby beetroot leaves or baby 
spinach leaves, 
to serve

Mashed potato, to serve

Red Wine Jus

150g shallots, peeled 
and thinly sliced
1 cup dry red wine
2 cups beef stock
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 180˚C. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add onion and pancetta. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until golden. Place in a bowl to cool. Combine herbs, garlic, mustard and remaining oil in another bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of herb mix to rub on beef. Add sourdough and remaining herb mix to onion. Season with salt and pepper.

Slice a 10cm pocket in beef, between bones and flesh. Stuff with sourdough mix. Truss with kitchen string. Heat an oiled roasting pan over a high heat. Season beef well. Sear for 10 minutes, turning regularly, until browned all over. Rub with remaining herb mix. Roast beef for 1 hour 15 minutes for medium, or until cooked to your liking. Meanwhile, wrap beetroot in foil. Roast for 50 minutes, until tender. Remove foil, peel and cut in half. Set aside.

When beef is done cover loosely with foil and rest for 25 minutes. Return pan to heat to make jus. Add shallots. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add wine, reduce by half. Add stock. Gentle boil for 10 minutes. Add balsamic and cornflour. Return to boil, stirring, for 2 minutes until thickened slightly. Serve beef with jus, mashed potato, beetroot and leaves.
