Recipe: Pistachio Crusted Roast Beef

Mostly a post for my father who wanted my recipe for the roast beef we made at Christmas... 

Pistachio Crusted Roast Beef

2kg Beef sirloin roast (or if preferred 300g per person)
1 cup shelled pistachios
2 tbpsn sea salt
1 tbspn ground black pepper
2 tbspns hazelnut oil


  • Remove the beef from the refrigerator and return to room temperature
  • Heat the oven to 175C and move a shelf with space to the middle of the oven
  • Shell the pistachios and chop into small pieces
  • Add the salt, pepper and oil to the nut mix and combine well
  • Place the beef on a roasting rack with room for water under the beef
  • Coat the top of the roast with the nut/seasoning mix 
  • Pour 2 cups of water into the bottom of the roasting pan, this will ensure the meat stays moist as it roasts
  • Roast the meat for 90 mins or until the meat is well browned 
  • Cover the roast with a foil tent and roast for another 20 mins
  • Remove the roasting pan from the oven and leave to rest under the foil tent for another 20 mins
  • Carve and serve with some of the nut crust and your favourite sides
