Oriental Welsh Beef topside salad marinated with soy, chilli and mustard


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together. Take the joint and place in a dish. Add marinade and thoroughly coat. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for about an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4, 180ºC, 350ºF and cook steaks for: 20 mins per 450g/½kg (1lb) + 20 mins – rare 25 mins per 450g/½kg (1lb) + 25 mins – medium 30 mins per 450g/½kg (1lb) + 30 mins – well done
  3. Remove the joint from marinade and place in a roasting pan and roast for about 50 minutes or weigh it and calculate the cooking time using guide opposite. Keep the marinade for later. Baste and turn occasionally.
  4. Remove and allow to stand for 5 minutes before carving (easier said than done when it looks so delicious).
  5. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan and boil thoroughly.
  6. Toss the salad ingredients together in a large bowl, top with the sliced meat and serve drizzled with the heated marinade.
