A topside roast is a cut of beef, most commonly sold in the UK, taken from the upper hindquarters of a cow. If cooked correctly, the meat of a topside roast is succulent and flavourful. To cook a beef topside roast, you need a few basic seasonings and approximately an hour for preparation and cooking. A basic topside roast recipe is for a 0.907 to 1.36kg. roast, but you can alter it to suit whatever size cut you have on hand.
