Tom: Well, I can’t believe how little you have to do to cook that. You just bung the beef in the oven for a couple of hours. You didn’t even season it, right?
Kirstin: No, I didn’t. Should I have?
Tom: And the outside was all crunchy and charred, while the inside was wonderfully rare. It was great!
Kirstin: It made the house smell yummy, too. I have a real thing about how lamb makes the house smell of burning wool. We should do that again. And, of course, cauliflower cheese. The children ate it, too. Miles loved it.
Tom: I can see why my grandparents did roast beef for Sunday lunch for their entire lives. No messing around, and it tastes great.
Kirstin: But there was no gravy, was there?
Tom: Good point. Let’s do this again for Christmas day. With gravy!
Kirstin: You’re on!
