British Sunday lunch is also known as a Sunday Roast and is the very heart of British food and cooking.

It is when families and friends get together and share good food. For the cook in the house, the roast recipes are time-consuming but worth every minute on the stove. Each household has its own favourite recipes.

A traditional British Sunday lunch is composed of roast meat – with roast beef at the top of the list – alongside Yorkshire Puddings, gravy, vegetables, and a dessert of pudding in the cold months replaced by a different sweet in the summer.

This hearty lunch is a matter of national pride and one of the most fabulous meals you’ll experience in the UK.

Cooking the Beef

Let the beef come to room temperature before you put it in the oven. Stand the roast in a pan, and season it generously with salt and pepper to taste. Start the beef in a hot oven at 425 F for the first 30 minutes, then lower the temperature to 375 F for the remaining time. Cook it to your preferred temperature using the following time recommendations:

  • Rare: 11 minutes per pound
  • Medium: 14 minutes per pound
  • Well: 16 minutes per pound
You can test the temperature with a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the beef. For safety, guidelines recommend cooking roasts to a minimum of 145 F, with at least a three-minute rest after you pull it from the oven. Keep in mind that the temperature will increase another 5 to 10 degrees as it rests, however, so you can pull it slightly below your target temperature. The following range provides guidelines for the degree of doneness:
  • Rare: 120 F
  • Medium: 145 F
  • Well: 165 F
Resting the Beef

Though guidelines suggest a three-minute rest, a roast generally benefits from a longer recovery period. Place it on a warm platter and tent it loosely with foil, then set it aside for up to 20 minutes, which is conveniently the amount of time you need to cook the Yorkshire pudding. The muscle fibers in meat contract during cooking and resting allows them to relax, redistributing some of the meat juices (great for the gravy) and resulting in a more tender piece of meat.
