Roasted Garlic and Thyme Topside of UK Beef

Usually I’d buy beef fillet or some rambunctious beef steaks if I’m serving red meat. When the butcher suggested a couple of top side of beef cuts I thought I’d give it a go. They were actually a lot cheaper than fillets and just as succulent. I cooked these as if they were steaks, my liking is as rare as possible, including blood. Maybe my inner cavewoman was always there before I started eating a Paleo diet? Back to the food…

Being Paleo means I can eat lean meat as much as I like, but to be honest red meat is something we have once or twice a week. Here’s a simple yet delicious recipe which is perfect for entertaining guests, or wining and dining someone special. 😉

Let’s get marinating
