Remove cooked potatoes from the pot and reduce the liquid to approx. 400 ml. Separate the liquid into 150ml and 250ml portions.
To make the sauce: melt butter in a small saucepan, then add flour and cook for approx. 1 minute, slowly add the warm 150ml of reduced silverside liquid, stirring in with a whisk, then add the milk slowly whilst continuously whisking to prevent lumps.Remove from heat and whisk in mustard and season to taste.
In a medium saucepan, heat the 250ml liquid and stir in cold butter and whisk until dissolved, season the liquid with salt and pepper
Blanch potatoes in boiling water for approx. 1 minute and add to liquid with chopped parsley and stir through.
Blanch baby carrots for approx. 3 minutes and beans for 1 minute.
