Donald Russell have a range of easy roasts that won’t disappoint your gourmet friends and which you can probably get away with claiming you made yourself, thus raising your status Jamie/Nigella levels.

The Great Taste Award winning trio of Donald Russell Beef Wellington, Easy Carve Carvery Rib Roast or Donald Russell Slow Cooked Beef Shin all provide easy prep

They’d be great for a special New Year’s Day supper or indulgent Winter Warmers (because who wants to diet when the weather is cold) when all the effort has gone into preparing Christmas Dinner itself:

The Beef Wellington is a perfect combination of beef fillet with duxelle mushroom and tarragon layers and flaky puff pastry, or servable with a truffle alternative layer.


These are handmade and hand finished by DonaldRussell’s expert craft butchers using grass-fed British beef fillet steak. From £55 per kg

The Rib Roast is Rib-eye steak kept in a whole roast, and deboned by our expert butchers for easy carving. This a Great Taste three star awards winner, so a sure fired success for the dining table. From £20.80 per kg

The Slow Cooked Beef Shin has already been slow-cooked by Donalds for 13 hours for you, bringing intense tenderness to the meat, and allowing for simple finishing off in your own oven from frozen with enough to feed 8 people. From £9 per Kg
