Horseradish-Crusted Roast Beef

To showcase deeply flavorful grass-fed beef, butcher-shop owners Jessica and Josh Applestone make a simple roast beef using any number of cuts, including rib loin (prime rib), top round or a tied sirloin tip. The roast -- deliciously crusted with horseradish and black peppercorns -- is perfect hot out of the oven, but it's also amazing cold on a sandwich: Thinly slice the roast beef and serve it on white bread with horseradish mayonnaise and juicy tomatoes.

How to Make Prime Rib with Creamed Horseradish

This Prime Rib with Creamed Horseradish dish is great for special occasions and the holidays. Beautiful and full of great flavor, this is served with our gravy and creamy horseradish to finish the presentation.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Set a rack in a large, deep roasting pan and place the beef roast on the rack.
In a small bowl, blend the horseradish with the salt, Dijon mustard, chopped parsley, ground pepper, sugar, and sherry vinegar to form a paste. Slather the paste all over the top and sides of the meat. Roast in the lower third of the oven for about 2 hours, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the roast registers 125 degrees. Transfer the roast to a cutting board and let rest for at least 20 minutes.
Discard the string and thinly slice the roast beef across the grain. Transfer the meat to a platter and serve.
The unsliced roast beef can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. The sliced roast beef can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated overnight.
