Cooking Instructions: Preheat oven to 230°C/Fan 210°C /Gas 8. Remove from packaging, pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to come to room temperature for 20 minutes. Brush the meat with a little oil, first sear in a hot pan on all sides for 6-8 minutes in total. Then place your meat uncovered on a rack in a roasting tin. Season with salt and pepper, place into the preheated oven and cook for:
Medium: 15 minutes
Well Done: 18-20 minutes
Cover with foil and rest in a warm place for at least 10 minutes
Low Temperature Cooking: Pre-heat oven and roasting tin to 80°C without the fan. Pat meat dry with kitchen paper. Heat a frying pan on high. Add a little oil to the pan, or brush directly onto the meat. Sear the meat all over for 6-8 minutes in total. Place on the pre-heated tin and season with salt & pepper. Set the thermometer to 60-65°C and insert horizontally into the centre of the meat. Put into the oven until the thermometer alarm sounds (approx 75 – 90 minutes).
