Preheat the oven to Gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F.

To prepare the chipotle butter; in a small bowl mix all the ingredients together.

Place the joint on a chopping board, make several slashes over the surface, season and spread with the butter. Transfer to a roasting rack in a medium non-stick roasting tin and roast for 40-50 minutes (for medium). Cover with foil if browning too quickly.

Remove the joint from the oven, transfer to a warm plate, cover and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes, 20 if time allows.

Slice the roast and serve with any meat juices, chips and seasonal vegetables or salad.
