    While the beef roast rests, make use of the pan juices by placing the roasting dish on the cook top over a moderately-high heat. Add the stock. Boil until the mixture is reduced to a thin sauce like consistency. Pour in the juices from the rested beef roast. Whisk in the butter and serve.

Notes

Judging your roast’s degree of doneness using a meat thermometer. The internal temperature of the meat will be: Rare – 55-60ºC, Medium – 65-70ºC, Well done – 75ºC.
You can also use tongs to test the roast’s doneness. Gently prod or squeeze the roast – rare is very soft, medium rare is soft, medium is springy but soft, medium well is firm and well done is very firm.
