Always preheat the oven before cooking. The best temperatures for roasting beef joints are
A) hot 425° F / 220° C / Gar Mark 7

Rare: hot for 15 minutes per lb (450g) plus 20 minutes; moderate heat for 20 minutes per lb (450g) plus 15 minutes.
Medium Rare: hot for 20 minutes per lb (450g) plus 20 minutes; moderate heat for 24 minutes per lb (450g) plus 20 minutes. Carve slices from outside of joint for people who like beef well done.

Cook joints with a natural fat with fat side uppermost, add a little fat to lean joints. Baste during cooking or use covered roasting tin.
