    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    White, black, green and pink peppercorns add wonderful flavor to this very special roast. A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon or French Bordeaux is the perfect wine to serve. As for vegetables, mix butter and tarragon with cooked baby carrots and green beans for a delicious accompaniment, then round it out with my Double-Baked Roquefort Potatoes. Now that's a holiday feast!

    • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 2 tablespoons mixed peppercorns, coarsely crushed
    • 1 teaspoon mixed peppercorn, coarsely crushed
    • 1/3 cup minced shallot
    • 3 1/2 cups canned beef broth

      Roast beef 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees. Roast until meat thermometer inserted in center of roast registers 125 degrees for medium-rare, tenting loosely with foil if crust browns too quickly, about 2 hours and 45 minutes.

      Meanwhile, pour pan juices into a 2-cup glass measuring cup (do not clean pan). Freeze pan juices for 10 minutes. Spoon fat off top of pan juices, returning 1 T. fat to roasting pan. Reserve juices.
