shrink-proof sirloin

spotted on CIX, and reposted by kind permission of Noreen and Keith.

1 sirloin of beef
3 large cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped
2 medium onions, sliced
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 tin of butter-beans
Mixture of fresh vegetables as liked, chunked or sliced (we used 1
aubergine, 2 courgettes, 8-10 mushrooms) (fennel, peppers also good but
you could use any veg you like of course)
Seasoning (dried herbs, black pepper)

Put the butter-beans, tomatoes, onion and garlic in a large bowl, add
the vegetables, mix all together and season as liked.  Put sirloin in a
foil lined roasting tin, pour veg mix over top until completely
submerged, cover with foil lid.  

Cook at top of oven on full for an hour (yes honestly, it will still be
very bloody) then reduce heat to Mk 4 and leave for another hour if you
like your beef well done, less if you don't - frankly I'm still
experimenting with this.

Any idea what temperature the oven needs to be at the start???

well, the recipe says "on full", so I guess that's what they mean!
