Horseradish-Crusted Roast Beef
Recipe from Food & Wine

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.

  • 1   pound 
    sirloin tip roast, preferably grass-fed, tied
  • 1/2  cup 
    prepared horseradish
  • 2   tablespoons 
    kosher salt
  • 2   tablespoons 
    Dijon mustard
  • 2   tablespoons 
    finely chopped parsley
  • 1   tablespoon 
    coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1   tablespoon 
  • 1   tablespoon 
    sherry vinegar
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.
