  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Trim excess fat from top of beef, leaving a layer of fat about 1/4-inch thick. Place meat on rack in shallow roasting pan. Mix mustard and garlic in small bowl; spread over top of beef. Sprinkle cracked peppercorns over mustard mixture

  • Roast, uncovered, until internal temperature reaches 135°F for medium-rare (1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hours) or 150°F for medium (2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours). Cover with foil and let stand 15 minutes before carving. (The temperature of the meat will rise about 10° during standing)

Cooking tip

To crack peppercorns: Place peppercorns in resealable plastic bag. Close tightly. Pound with a rolling pin, mallet or heavy skillet until coarsely cracked.
