3 1/2 pounds roast beef, 1 cup sauce


  • 1 teaspoon pink and/or black peppercorns, cracked

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 4 pound boneless beef rib-eye roast

  • 1 recipe Horseradish Cream (see recipe below)

Horseradish Cream

  • ½ cup whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoon cream-style prepared horseradish

  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard


  1. Sprinkle cracked peppercorns and salt evenly over roast; rub in with your fingers. Place roast, fat side up, on a rack in a 15-1/2x10-1/2x2-inch roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center of roast. Roast, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven until desired doneness. (Allow 1-3/4 to 2 hours for medium-rare doneness [135 degree F] or 2 to 2-1/2 hours for medium doneness [150 degreeF].)

  2. Reserve pan drippings for Individual Yorkshire Puddings or Yorkshire Pudding. Cover with roast with foil; let stand while preparing pudding(s). (The meat's temperature will rise 10 degree F during standing.)

  3. To serve, slice roast. Serve with the Horseradish Cream. Makes 12 servings.

  1. In a chilled small bowl, beat whipping cream with chilled beater or an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tip curl). Fold in cream-style prepared horseradish and dry mustard. Serve immediately, or cover and store horseradish mixture in the refrigerator up to 24 hours.
