Roasting Beef - 2 quick questions?

Bought a house keepers cut off the bone on offer in the local supermarket as opposed to my normal butcher and theres a nesh around it ! My first question is do I take it off before cooking the beef or leave in on. On the instructions it says to be sure to remove the soak pad that it sits on but nothing about the nesh.

Secondly, its weighs 2lbs 2 oz. Does the 2oz count in the timing? Do i cook as if its 3lbs plus the extra lb or 2 lbs plus the extra and add in a couple of minutes for the 2 oz?

Well, I'm not familiar with the name of that cut of beef, but your general questions are easy to answer.

Leave the mesh on, and cook it as if it was 2lbs plus a litle more.

I agree with Miss Lee...Leave the netting on...cook to the desired internal temperature
