  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 5 ounces mushrooms, minced
  • 5 ounces prepared peppercorn pate
  • 12 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 12 teaspoon dried herbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 6 -7 lbs standing rib roast

Directions

  1. Place bacon in a frying pan.

  7. Mix in pate, breadcrumbs, parsley, herbs and egg.
  8. Preheat oven to 450F.
  9. Cut a pocket in the meat along the rib bones and outer layer of fat.
  10. Fill this pocket with the pate mixture and secure with a skewer if necessary.
  11. Place meat in a baking dish, fat side up (the bones make a natural rack).
  12. Roast meat for 3 minutes at this high temperature then reduce temperature to 350F.
  13. Continue to roast for a further 1 ½ hour or until done to taste.
  14. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
