  • Temperature, time key to tasty beef rib roast

    Nothing impresses more than a beautifully roasted piece of beef. Whether it’s a special day or just a week day, a properly cooked cut of beef can make any occasion special.

    The trick to this recipe is the timing with the meat. You don’t want to cut into the meat before it has time to rest or all the delicious juice would run out. Giving the meat plenty of time to rest will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, creating a tastier bite.

    The horseradish sauce with the beef adds a nice sharp tone that helps cut through the richness.
