4 tbsp Olive Oil
2 Eggs (whites only)
1 Shallot (finely chopped)
1 clove Garlic (crushed)

Sirloin Roast with Parsley Lemon Crust

Instructions

Allow the meat to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven with a baking tray to 80ºC without the fan. Pat the meat dry with kitchen paper. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sear the meat all over for 8-10 minutes in total. Place the meat onto the preheated tray and season with salt and pepper. Put the meat into the oven and cook for 2½ to 3 hours. If you have a meat thermometer set the temperature to 60ºC and place the probe horizontally into the centre of the joint.

Meanwhile prepare the crust, lightly whisk the egg whites; add all the ingredients up to and including the toast, stir until evenly combined and season with salt and pepper. Set the crust mixture aside.

Once the meat is cooked and has reached an internal temperature of 60ºC, remove the meat from the oven. Spread the crust mixture evenly over the top of the roast. (If you wish, remove the fat covering before you spread the crust over the roast).
Pre heat grill to a high temperature, then place the roast under the grill to brown up the crust for a few minutes, watch continually. Carve and serve on preheated plates.

If your guests are running late or if you wish to be well prepared, you can keep the meat warm (before adding the crust) for up to an hour in an oven set to 60ºC.

Serve with roasted potatoes, tomatoes and olives.
